NEW SERVICE FOR PATIENTS OVER 75!

You may be aware that from April all practices are required to provide all their patients aged 75 and over with a named GP who will have overall responsibility for the care and support that our surgery provides to them.

Your named GP will have overall responsibilty for the care you receive. This does not prevent you from seing any GP in the practice as you currently do. Please remember also that if you are in need of urgent care the Duty doctor continues to be your first port of call.

You do not need to take any further action, but if you have any questions or wish to discuss this further with us, please contact us on 020 7387 5798 or at CLCCG.FitzroviaMedicalCentre@nhs.net

 

FRUSTRATED AT NOT BEING ABLE TO BOOK AN APPOINTMENT TODAY?

In August 173 people did not turn up for their appointment! This represents 37% of all our appointments and two whole GP clinics a day for a week!

Please remember to cancel your appointment if you are unable to attend so that we can offer it to someone who needs it!

The Fitzrovia Medical Centre

The Fitzrovia Medical Centre is a GP Practice located in a Grade II listed building in a beautiful Georgian Square. This is a relatively new site, having moved here from very cramped premises in the next door building in 1993. There has been a medical practice in the square since at least the 1960’s. The building was further improved in 2003 when we obtained funds from Westminster PCT to convert the damp and dark basement into a light modern area of 4 new consulting rooms, a treatment room, an open plan area and washing/WC facilities including disabled provision.

Our current core activity is providing General Medical Services under the NHS nGMS contract. We currently have in the region of 6700 patients registered here under nGMS. There are three GP Principal Partners, two salaried GPs and, as a designated training practice we have a GP registrar some of the time. We employ two practice nurses, two part time health care assistant, two part time health advisor/link workers (one of whom is a Bengali speaker), a part time smoking cessation counsellor and a part time practitioner of traditional Chinese acupuncture.

Attached health care professionals not directly employed include a health visitor, counsellor, IAPT (Improving Access to Psychological Therapies) workers and several district nursing teams.

Non clinical staff comprise: a practice manager, a deputy manager/administrator and 4 receptionists/clerical workers. We take pride in a long standing commitment to holistic person centred care. For some years now we have been providing 15 minute consultations with doctors and nurses in order to give patients the time they need and to allow for the delivery of health promotion etcetera. We have employed alternative practitioners within the practice for many years and one of the GP partners is a practicing acupuncturist. All members of the Surgery Primary Care Team are dedicated to a quality policy to achieve health services which meet patient's requirements

The doctors and staff at the Fitzrovia Medical Centre in Fitzroy Square  in London are proud to offer the highest standard of patient-centred healthcare. Our catchment area covers large parts of Westminster and Camden and our list is always open. Please ask at reception if you would like to join our practice.

We run many clinics for the management of chronic diseases such as asthma and diabetes and offer a wide variety of other medical services including antenatal and postnatal care, minor surgery, childhood vaccinations and well-person check-ups.

In addition to everything you need to know about the practice you will also find a large selection of health-related information in the menu on the right hand side. Much of this links through to articles and sections on the NHS Choices website.

Please have a look around and do send us some feedback if you like.

Disabled Access

The surgery provides access to disabled patients to a ground floor consulting room.  We also have a chair lift for access to other treatment rooms on the lower ground floor and a disabled toilet.
