The clinic is not run by the surgery, however, so please check the Teddington HSCC website for details of their clinic times before visiting.
We perform minor operations at the surgery for a limited range of conditions as governed by NHS regulations. You will need to have seen one of the GPs who will then ask reception to book an appointment; sessions are normally held on Thursday mornings or Friday afternoons.
If you have recently found out that you are pregnant, please note that you can self-refer yourself for obstetric care at Kingston or West Middlesex Hospitals. Please see their websites for details.
We work closely with the local hospitals and community midwives an share the antenatal care of most of our patients. Antenatal appointments are carried out in normal surgery hours. Please book with a doctor.
If you attending for an antenatal clinic please bring in a urine sample with you (bottles are available at reception).
Please ensure that you book a twenty minute appointment and that you have blood and urine tests taken two weeks prior to your diabetes appointment.
If you are suffering from a skin complaint, we run a specific dermatology clinic. This is held on a Tuesday afternoon and run by Dr Julian Bradley. Appointments for this clinic can be booked directly through reception.
The practice can advise about smoking cessation and offer referral to the local smoking cessation clinics. If you are interested then please call the surgery to book an appointment to discuss. We can offer various stop smoking aids and offer advice and motivation to enable you to quit.
Minor skin lesions (Warts, verruca, skin tags, small fleshy growths) can be removed by cryotherapy (freezing treatment). Our freezing clinic is held once a month, normally on a Thursday afternoon. We use liquid nitrogen—an extremely cold gas (-193 degrees Centigrade) to freeze the lesion in question. The treatment is uncomfortable, but usually not too painful.
We make full use of Teddington Memorial Hospital, which has excellent outpatient physiotherapy and X-ray facilities as well as a minor injuries unit and fifty two GP beds. Teddington Memorial Hospital also houses an Urgent care centre (08:00 - 20:00).
Due to the ever increasing high patient demand on appointments the Partners have, after much consideration, taken the decision stop ear syringing at the surgery from 1st January 2019.
We apologise for any inconvenience caused but have taken this decision, in line with other local surgeries, after consideration of the workload pressures on our nurses and also the fact that there are other alternative treatments available. The doctors have a duty of care under the GMS contract to assess patients, perform an appropriate examination and then decide either to treat them or refer them to a specialist. However, ear syringing is not stipulated within the GMS contract and it was felt necessary, in the changing light of general practice, to review and prioritise the services that the surgery provides.
The doctors would encourage patients who think they have wax in their ears to talk to the Pharmacist about using over the counter remedies and are advised to use drops or olive oil for several weeks in order to soften wax. Following this Ear syringing and microsuction services are available from some local pharmacies should this be required.
In some cases your GP may decide to refer you for microsuction to NHS community services. Please be advised that you can still book an appointment with a Doctor if you have any concerns about ear symptoms.
Sexual health services are changing
From 1 October 2017 sexual health clinics in Wandsworth and Richmond will be moving to new locations. The services offer contraception, STI testing, treatment and advice for all ages.
There are details of all the new clinics at www.clch.nhs.uk/swlsexhealth. The new service will be open 6 days a week with evening clinics in Merton, Richmond and Wandsworth and Saturday morning clinics available from Balham Health Centre in Wandsworth.
The new service will run HIV testing and HIV post sexual exposure treatment (PEP). However, specialist services for patients living with HIV remain provided by local hospitals.
The changes are part of the London Sexual Health Programme, a unique collaboration of 29 London Boroughs looking to transform the way sexual health services are organised and provided. This will make service better for patients, better for providers and better for the public as a whole.
If you have booked an appointment with a GP for a suspected urinary tract infection please can you bring in a urine sample with you (bottles are available in reception).

Request for letter to school regarding sickness during exams
We have been advised by the BMA that exam boards do not require a letter from a child's GP, following sickness during exams. In the event that a school requests such a letter then we will send them the reply attached, detailing why it should not be necessary. If you still require a letter to the school to detail sickness absence during your child's examinations then there will be a charge of £70, as this is outside the remit of NHS work.

OUR APOLOGIES FOR ANY INCONVENIENCE CAUSED.
There is further information about countries and vaccinations required on the links below
It is important to make this initial appointment as early as possible - at least 6 weeks before you travel - as a second appointment will sometimes be required with the practice nurse to actually receive the vaccinations. Travel vaccinations are usually kept in stock but may occasionally need to be ordered. Your second appointment needs to be at least 2 weeks before you travel to allow the vaccines to work.
Some travel vaccines are ordered on a private prescription and these incur a charge over and above the normal prescription charge. This is because not all travel vaccinations are included in the services provided by the NHS.
