All doctors work closely with the rest of the primary care team and regular meetings are held. We hope to provide a personal but comprehensive primary health care system. We believe in continuity of care for all members of the family from babies to the elderly, including care of the dying at home. We think that investigation and treatment are best undertaken by the GP if possible, and use made of specialist hospital departments only when necessary.
We are fortunate in being close to Guys and St Thomas' hospitals that have excellent facilities. By maintaining close links and referring when appropriate, we believe that the best possible service will be available for you.
We work closely with our local clinical commissioning group (Southwark Clinical Commissioning Group).
We help train medical students from our local medical schools (Kings College London and university College London) and also train GP registrars, (doctors very close to completing their training for general practice), in association with the London deanery. We have trained practice nurses and nurse practitioners in the past.
In 2007 we established a patient forum and held our first open day.
