Total Triage System

Since Wednesday 10 January 2024, we are operating a total triage system, where every request for a GP appointment is triaged by our GP team. To request a doctors appointment we are asking all our patients to use an online form where possible. If you find it difficult to use a computer or a smartphone, you can telephone our reception on 020 8669 6186 or attend in person and our receptionists will fill out the form on your behalf. Our reception staff are not able to book an appointment with a GP directly.

Accessible Information Standard

The standard aims to make sure our patients, or their carers, with a disability, sensory loss or impairment are provided with information they can easily read or understand with support, for example large print, so they can communicate effectively with health and social care services
If you have any information or communication support needs relating to a disability, impairment or sensory loss please let us know your preferred communication method.   

Making Health Care Information Accessible

The aim of the accessible information standard is to make sure that people with a medical condition which affects their ability to communicate, get information that they can access and understand, and have any communication support they might need

The standard tells organisations how to make information accessible to people in the format they need, as well as support people’s communication needs, for example by offering support from a British Sign Language (BSL) interpreter, deafblind manual interpreter or an advocate.

Our Communication with You

At our Practice, we want to make sure that we are communicating with you in a way that is easy for you and that you can understand:

  • We want to know if you need information in a specific format e.g. braille, large print or easy read
  • We want to know if you need to receive information in a particular way
  • We want to know if you need someone to support you at appointments e.g. a sign language interpreter or an advocate
  • We want to know if you lip read or use a hearing aid or communication tool
