Our surgery is located at the Warfield Green Medical Centre. It is right next door to the Tesco supermarket.

This website is designed to be simple and easy to use - and with a single click from the menu above you can get straight to the information you need ... be it obtaining an on-line repeat prescription from the "how-to" section to understanding who within the practice can best help you through the "staff roles" area.

Practice Partners:Dr Chauke Kade, Dr Wishav Goel, Dr Manjiri Bodhe, Dr Helen Rutherford & Dr Ranette O'Sullivan. For more information about choosing a GP or GP services and appointments please visit NHS CHOICES.

October 2014

New Appointment System goes live!

From 1st October 2014 we have gone live with the implementation phase of our new appointment system in line with offering Personalised GP appointments.

We request your co-operation in this by confirming with reception that you know who your Registered Doctor is. We believe this will help us to provide continuity of care for better health outcomes and more satisfied patients.

Our permanent doctors will be available throughout the week on the following days:

Monday Dr Kade Dr Goel Dr Bodhe Dr Rutherford Dr O’Sullivan

Tuesday

Dr Kade

Dr Goel

Dr Harrison

Dr Bodhe

 

Wednesday

Dr Goel

Dr Harrison

Dr Rutherford Dr O’Sullivan

 

Thursday

Dr Kade

Dr Goel

Dr Bodhe

Dr Rutherford Dr O’Sullivan

Friday

Dr Bodhe Dr Rutherford Dr O’Sullivan

 

 

 If your Registered Doctor is not available on a particular day, or whilst you are waiting for your appointment, helpful advice can also be found at www.patient.co.uk. Any urgent care needs will of course be covered on the day by other GPs as required.

Also when booking your appointment it would be very helpful to the doctor if you would give a brief explanation of the nature of your appointment.

During this transitional phase we are requesting patients to remain with Registered Doctor for at least 6 months prior to requesting any transfer. We believe this will allow you to build a relationship with the Doctor whom you may not yet know and then make an informed decision.

We would of course very much appreciate your co-operation and patience during this implementation phase.
