Access to general practice – We are open!

Due to the coronavirus outbreak, how you contact us will be different at the moment. This is to limit face-to-face contact wherever possible and help stop the spread of coronavirus.

Face-to-face appointments are available to all patients, but you may be asked to discuss your conditions over the phone or online first to assess what would be most appropriate for you

You can also call NHS 111. Please do not come to the surgery unless you have an appointment.

If you are waiting for a check-up, please be assured we will be in touch

Appointments are being delivered face-to-face, online and over the telephone. If you are asked to come into the surgery for a face-to-face appointment, please remember to wear a face covering. Measures are in place to keep you safe from infection during your visit to the surgery.

 

Clinical Research

Clinical Research

The practice is involved in research . This Research is conducted within the NHS and benefits patients worldwide. Research studies take different forms, if there is a study that you may be suitable for you may be contacted by either the practice or the research team offering you the opportunity to participate. This is entirely optional.

It is important to note that none of your personal information or medical data will be shared without your permission.

In addition Knoll medical practice belongs to the Clinical Practice Research Datalink (CPRD). More information on this can be found at https://cprd.com/home . This tool has helped save lives and improve healthcare for over 30 years. It is now even more crucial during the COVID19 pandemic. If however, having read the CPRD information on their website (link above) you do not want your records to be part of this tool, please let the practice know.

Routine immunisations during the pandemic

NHS services in London are working hard to make sure all adults and babies still receive their routine vaccinations. When you visit your GP surgery, things may be a little different: social distancing and infection prevention control measures may be in place. This is all to keep you and staff safe. If you are due a vaccination, contact your GP today. nhs.uk/vaccinations.

Training Practice

Training Practice

The Surgery is now an approved practice for the training of doctors. This means we have doctors with us for a fixed amount of time at different stages of their training. Some may only be spending some time in General practice before moving onto other specialities whilst others are finishing their training to become GP’s.   Please click on the attachment below for more information:
