Specially designed toilet facilities are also available. We have a loop system for the hard of hearing. If you require any further specific help, please ask at reception.
Have you received a letter from NHS England List Maintenance Team?
Firstly, it is not a scam, but a piece of work to improve the accuracy of the GP lists, NHS England are writing to a sample of patients to ask them to confirm their GP registration details.
Please be aware that if you received a letter from NHS England during March & April asking you to confirm who you are registered with and did not respond, you will be automatically de-registered unless you make contact with your surgery.
If this applies to you, please contact your surgery as soon as possible to confirm you wish to remain registered.
No Changes To Your Details
If all details are CORRECT and there are NO CHANGES then you can:
confirm your registration details either on the phone 0800 3265270 or 0330 3332651, Register by Internet www.sbs.nhs.uk/primary-care-services/sw, text (SMS) 86006 or return the letter in the freepost envelope enclosed with the letter. The telephone number to direct patients to is 0208 536 3075.
If your address or GP practice details printed on the first page of the letter are NOT correct, return the 2nd page, completed with the correct details in the FREEPOST envelope.
During July we will be installing a new clinical IT system called SystmOne. This new system will bring many benefits for both staff and patients, however IT training may take some time.
We would like to thank you in advance for your consideration and patience during this transitional period.
During the transition and over the next few weeks the number of appointments available to book in advance will be reduced.
If you have any medication due to be issued during the week beginning 7th July 2014 we ask that you request this the week before. This will ensure the continuity of your repeat medication during this short transition time.
We hope that by Thursday 17th July 2014 the usual availability of advance appointments will be restored as will the normal procedures for ordering of repeat prescriptions.
