Improving access to general practice: evening and weekend appointments
Patients who are registered at this practice continue to be able to book an appointment to see a GP or nurse on weekday late evenings (Monday, Tuesday and Thursday after 6.30pm) or on Saturday (GP only). From now, patients who wish to be seen in late (after 6.30 and before 8pm) on Wednesday and Friday and on Saturday afternoon and Sundays will be able to book into appointments at an alternative NHS setting in Wandsworth. Talk to reception to find out more or book an appointment.
Are you a carer? We are keen to know if you are looking after someone so we can support you with carer consultations and guide you to other support. Please let the clinician or the reception staff know if you would like it recorded on your record that you have carer responsibilities for another person and if you have not yet had a yearly review please book a consultation.
Why not try our on-line consultation as an alternative to coming in to see the GP? You will receive a response within 24 hours so it isn't suitable for urgent issues but can help enormously for less pressing issue.
Patients who register for on-line access are able to make and cancel GP appointments, order repeat medication and view medical records 24 hours a day 7 days per week. If you would like to use this system go to the section below headed “Further Information" and select option 8 Online access link to learn more.
