This is to help local hospitals and the ambulance service as they are extremely busy at the moment.

Outside of these hours please call 111.

 

You could also consider using your local pharmacy for non-urgent health advice.

 

Please only call 999 if it is a life-threatening emergency.

Coronavirus - Important Information

We are still seeing patients face to face.

Please discuss your medical problem with a doctor or a nurse on the phone before coming to the practice.

You will not be able to enter the buildling to see a doctor or nurse unless this has been arranged in advance. This is to safeguard the most vulnerable members of the community so that they can safely attend the practice.

COVID-19 Vaccine Update

Thank you for all your enquiries about the covid-19 vaccine. Lavender Hill Group Practice is working together with other Battersea practices and we have already started vaccinating our first cohorts of patients.

As you may be aware,  from the news and government announcements, the vaccine is in limited supply and it will be offered to patients in high risk/priority groups first.

We will contact the relevant patient groups to book appointments as soon as we are able to, either by text or telephone. You do not need to contact us.

We are sure that you will appreciate that we are working very hard on this at present, and we thank you for your patience.

To protect as many people in at-risk groups as quickly as possible, booster doses will now be delivered within 12 weeks of the first dose, and we will be contacting patients again for the second dose.

Information about the vaccination can be found on the NHS website here: https://www.nhs.uk/conditions/coronavirus-covid-19/coronavirus-vaccination/coronavirus-vaccine/

Update to our services during COVID-19 Pandemic

Our nurses, doctors and wider members of staff are all seeing patients face to face.

In order to protect the local community from the spread of COVID-19 (Coronavirus), our appointment system is changing.

For an appointment with a GP, please book a telephone appointment either by calling the surgery or by booking via online patient access. The GP will call you at the time arranged, and arrange a video appointment or a face-to-face appointment if necessary. Unless you have no other way of booking an appointment, please do not come in to book an appointment - if you do, you will be asked to return home and phone us. We continue to provide full medical services.

For appointments with the nursing team please call the surgery.

Online consultation triage. Our online triage service, doctorlink, is working as normal. It can be used for routine appointments, or if you are not sure how quickly you should see a doctor or a nurse. To use doctorlink, please visit our Appointments page.

For repeat prescriptions of contraceptive pills - please arrange a phone consultation with a GP and a 3 month prescription can be issued over the telephone. If you are able to get your blood pressure checked, either with a friend, relative or in a local pharmacy, we may be able to prescribe a longer course.

Please do not order repeat prescriptions early for routine medications. As per national guidance, if prescriptions are requested early they will not be completed.

 

For enquiries relating to your clinical care (for example requests for letters or an update on a referral), please email the practice. If you do not have an email address or are unable to contact the practice via email then please contact our reception and administration team via telephone or in writing.

We will deal with your enquiry within 7 days. If your request is more urgent, please contact reception via telephone.
