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.

Safeguarding

Our Primary Care Team is committed to safeguarding children. The safety and welfare of children who come into contact with our services either directly or indirectly is paramount, and all staff have a responsibility to ensure that Best Practice is followed, including compliance with statutory requirements.

We are committed to a Best Practice which safeguards children and young people irrespective of their background, and which recognises that a child may be abused regardless of their age, gender, religious beliefs, racial origin or ethnic identity, culture, class, disability or sexual orientation.

The Primary Care Team are committed to working within agreed policies and procedures and in partnership with other agencies, to ensure that the risks of harm to a child or young person are minimised. This work may include direct and indirect contact with children, access to patient’s details and communication via email or text message/telephone.
