CORONAVIRUS ADVICE FROM PUBLIC HEALTH ENGLAND:

  2. all travellers from Wuhan and Hubei Province should self-isolate for 14 days, even if they do not have symptoms, due to the increased risk from that area.

From Monday 15th July 2019 we are introducing a new system for contacting the practice officially launching our on line consultation system eConsult. Please see below.

IF YOU REQUIRE MEDICAL ADVICE WHILST THE PRACTICE IS CLOSED PLEASE CALL NHS 111 (dial 111) OR FOR MEDICAL EMERGENCIES CALL 999

Out-of-hours services are generally busy so please think carefully before asking to see a doctor and only do so if you genuinely cannot wait until the surgery re-opens.

Registered patients of Lambeth Walk Group Practice can access extended opening times at four specially selected GP Access Hubs in the borough.

Our GP Access Hubs offer appointments seven days a week at the following times:   12pm–8pm Monday to Friday   8am-8pm Weekends and bank holidays   To book an appointment, simply call us as usual. If you are unable to attend an appointment during our usual opening times, if you wish you can be referred to a GP Hub.   For further information you can visit www.lambethgpaccesshubs.co.uk

Confidentiality

The practice complies with the Data Protection Act.  All information about patients is confidential: from the most sensitive diagnosis, to the fact of having visited the surgery or being registered at the Practice. All patients can expect that their personal information will not be disclosed without their permission except in the most exceptional of circumstances, when somebody is at grave risk of serious harm.

 

All members of the primary health care team (from reception to doctors) in the course of their duties will have access to your medical records. They all adhere to the highest standards of maintaining confidentiality.

 

As our reception area is a little public, if you wish to discuss something of a confidential nature please mention it to one of the receptionists who will make arrangements for you to have the necessary privacy.

 

Under 16s

The duty of confidentiality owed to a person under 16 is as great as the duty owed to any other person. Young people aged under 16 years can choose to see health professionals, without informing their parents or carers. If a GP considers that the young person is competent to make decisions about their health, then the GP can give advice, prescribe and treat the young person without seeking further consent.

 

However, in terms of good practice, health professionals will encourage young people to discuss issues with a parent or carer. As with older people, sometimes the law requires us to report information to appropriate authorities in order to protect young people or members of the public.
