Apart from our emergency morning clinics, all other surgery consultations with the doctor and nurse are by appointment only. Appointments may be made in person or by phone. Several appointments are reserved every day both for urgent problems and to ensure 48 hour access to a GP. You can view our GP Consulting Times on the website. If you have an appointment you no longer need or are unable to keep, please inform us as soon as possible so that it can be offered to another patient. If you are more than 15 minutes late for your appointment you will be asked to make a new appointment.
Our Nurses and Healthcare Assistants are available for help with minor ailments and general advice, as well as: smears; sexual health screening; child and adult immunisations; dressings; removal of stitches; urine testing; blood pressure checks; blood tests; ear syringing; advice on asthma; blood pressure management; diabetic management; dietary advice; advice about operations; contraception advice; emergency contraception and travel health checks. Please ask at reception for an appointment.
Streatham Hill Group Practice is committed to providing a safe, comfortable environment where patients and staff can be confident that best practice is being followed at all times and the safety of everyone is of paramount importance. All patients are entitled to have a chaperone present for any consultation, examination or procedure where they feel one is required. This chaperone may be a family member or friend.
On occasions you may prefer a formal chaperone to be present, i.e. a trained member of staff. Wherever possible we would ask you to make this request at the time of booking appointment so that arrangements can be made and your appointment is not delayed in any way. Where this is not possible we will endeavour to provide a formal chaperone at the time of request. However occasionally it may be necessary to reschedule your appointment. Your healthcare professional may also require a chaperone to be present for certain consultations in accordance with our chaperone policy. If have any questions or comments regarding this please contact the manager
