Cancelling Your Appointment
We do understand that sometimes you may forget your appointment, or that other important life incidents happen and that you sometimes no longer need the appointment. We do ask that if you cannot attend your appointment, please cancel it or notify the practice why you did not attend at your earliest convenience.
We have a large number of people who do not attend their appointments every single week leading to wasted doctor and nurse time, leading to delays in you being able to get an appointment.
You can telephone us on 020 8992 4331, cancel via the NHS App, or come in and speak to Reception.
Please let us know well in advance, at least 4 working hours, if you cannot make your appointment so that it may be allocated to another patient.
It is clinically better for you to be seen at the surgery where we have better facilities, diagnostic aids and lighting to assess you. We work closely with Ealing Community Transport to bring patients to the surgery where possible.
Home visits are ONLY for housebound patients and for those too ill to attend the surgery. Home visits are not for those who do not have transport.
If you need a home visit please contact the surgery as early as possible in the morning, before 10:00, and give one of our receptionists details. Our duty doctor will call you back for more information and confirm whether a home visit is appropriate depending on the urgency of your needs.
