Accessible Information Standard

The Accessible Information Standard aims to ensure that patients (or their carers) who have a disability or sensory loss receive information they can access and understand. For example in large print, braille or via email.

As part of the Accessible Information Standard we must:

  • Identify patients who may have an additional communication need.
  • Record the patient's need in our clinical GP system.
  • Flag the patient's record to assure additional communication needs are obvious to practice staff;
  • Share this information with other care givers such as social care;
  • Act to ensure our staff can effectively communicate with patients who may have additional communication needs.

Please inform a member of staff in reception if you have any communication support needs- you can call us on 0207 249 5511 or tell a receptionist in person. You need to help us make sure we get things right for you.

Named Accountable GP for all Patients

From 1st April 2015, all practices are required to inform their patients including children of their named accountable GP, under the new GP contract for 2015/2016. The named GP will have overall responsibility for the care and support that the surgery provides to you.

If you would like to know who your named GP is please contact reception.

This does not prevent you from seeing any GP in the practice as you currently do.

Repeat Prescription

Please allow 48 hours for processing of your repeat prescription once you have dropped it off at the surgery. We do not take requests for repeat prescriptions over the telephone.

Cancelling your Appointment

If you are unable to attend an appointment with one of the doctors or nurses, please telephone to cancel your appointment.

Out of Hours

Please ring 111 if you have any Out of Hours emergencies. Telephone calls to the out of hours service are routinely tape-recorded as a safe-guard for patients and staff alike

Welcome to Barton House Group 

Through the pandemic we have strived to make the surgery as safe as possible for all our patients and staff.  We will continue to do so going forward. 


For the time being there will be no changes here at the practice. Patients coming to the surgery will still need to wear a mask, use the hand sanitiser and socially distance. Our staff will continue to wear appropriate PPE. 

We have made this decision as often patients coming to the surgery are sick, vulnerable and maybe unvaccinated due to medical reasons, so we feel that these precautions will help to protect everyone. We also need to minimise the number of our staff catching Covid so we can keep a functioning service, so for this reason alone these measures are vital.

Our consultations will continue, these might be offered as face to face, by phone or by video. It is worth noting that we are consulting with higher numbers of patients than we ever did before the pandemic, whilst also playing a big part in the vaccination programme too. Our doors have never been shut.

 

We hope you will understand why we need to continue with these measures and keep the surgery as safe for everyone as we can. We have all come so far in trying to minimise the impact of Covid, let’s continue to stay safe together.

If you need to speak to a GP, please book an appointment by calling reception on 0207 249 5511 or by using our online booking service. Our appointment line opens at 8am in the morning, please call at this time for an appointment that day. If your query is urgent we have a duty doctor available throughout our opening hours.

You may have noticed some differences in how we worked during the pandemic. We are working, where possible, to reduce the need to come into the practice, and thus reduce the spread of the coronavirus. As always your initial appointment will be by telephone. If a face to face appointment is needed, this will be offered to you.

Please do not attend the practice without first speaking to a doctor

If you are invited in for a face to face appointment, we will ask you some questions to check it is safe for you to come to the practice. Please let the doctor know, and do not attend the practice, if you are experiencing any symptoms of Covid-19 (fever, cough or loss of sense of smell), if you have been advised that you have been in contact with someone with Covid-19, or if you are waiting for the result of a swab test for Covid-19.

When you attend for your appointment, please wear a face mask, and if possible, attend alone. Hand gel will be available, please do use this on your arrival.

Our waiting room is set up to enable social distancing. We ask that you come close to the time of your appointment to avoid the waiting room becoming busy.

We are still providing most of our usual services, including vaccinations and smear tests. Please do contact reception to make an appointment for these. We are currently only arranging blood tests that are urgent, please do discuss with your doctor if you think you need a blood test.

We have taken steps to keep our staff safe, including risk assessing our work and use of PPE. We are looking after our mental wellbeing through regular team meetings and staff support sessions.
