Noticeboard

Keep Your Details up to Date
Please do update your contact details (box at the bottom of screen) with home and mobile. You will receive appointment reminders and occasional requests for information by text.

 

Budgets
Patients are quite rightly getting more and more frustrated at not getting what they want, when they want it! Please be assured that we are your advocates and we act in your best interests. But we do have to prescribe cost-effectively, and refer for medical reasons when we can't manage your problem, not simply for your peace of mind. You will not find a GP practice these days which will oblige your every wish without discussion!

 

Photo ID

You may be asked for a photo for our records. This reduces problems where patients are mistaken for each other when they consult another GP within the practice. PHONE CALLS may be recorded for your protection.

 

Sickness Certificates

The first 7 days of sickness do not require a certificate from your GP. If your employer insists on a sickness form, complete a Self-Certification form, which can be found here

Contraceptive Advice is available from all of the doctors as well as the local Family Planning Clinics in Sutton cased at the Jubilee Health Centre and The Rosehill Centre at St Helier Hospital. They will also be able to fit coils which we cannot currently do.

There are various methods of family planning to suit all women. Both the GP surgery and the family planning clinics are sensitive to the needs of young people, confidentiality in particular.  

Emergency contraception morning after pill is best taken as soon as possible after unprotected sex. This can be obtained from most chemists after a private chat with the pharmacist. In this practice, we have same day appointments available. If you are at work and cannot get here, please call to speak to a doctor on the telephone or use Online Services. Both family planning clinics have walk-in times as well, you can follow the links above.

Pregnant?

Since trying to conceive, you should be taking vitamins already such as vitamin D/folic acid, both available over the counter. You should also have discussed any repeat medications with your GP. Hopefully, you have taken advice regarding alcohol and some foods such as soft cheeses/pates and raw shellfish.

As soon as you find out you are pregnant, you should think about which hospital you wish to book at and refer yourself via their website to get the quickest appointment possible. Most of our patients choose St Helier for convenience.


With lots to think about, you may find printing My Maternity Journey booklet helpful. You can also find useful link on the NHS website.

Don't forget your Flu Jab & Whooping Cough vaccine at around 5 months; pregnant women are at high risk of Sepsis!

Unwanted Pregnancies

You will need to speak to your GP as soon as possible about an unwanted pregnancy. For more detailed information, you can visit the British Pregnancy Advisory Service.
Another useful place to find unbiased information is Marie Stopes. To self-refer to the South West London Termination of Pregnancy Services, please call 0345 872 5503.
Be aware that private companies are allowed to advertise for abortion as well.
