Belgravia Surgery is now a teaching practice.

The Belgravia Surgery is now a teaching practice. This means that we will now be training medical students from Imperial College London at the practice. 
 
As part of their training, they will shadow our GPs and do consultations with patients so that they can learn about general practice and medicine. If you have been booked in to see a medical student please don’t worry. There will always be a qualified GP working with them who will go through your problems in detail and make sure that the right thing is done. 
 
If you are booked in to see a medical student, you should be told about this and you are entitled to request an alternative appointment if you wish or to decline that they be present in your consultation. However, we hope that you will help us to train the future doctors of the NHS and therefore be open-minded about seeing the medical students and allowing them to get the experience that they need.

System downtime due to electrical issues 08/09/2022

Dear Patient 

Due to some electrical issues the surgery may experience some periods of downtime of our clinical system and or telephone lines today. This may mean we will not be able to answer your query straight away. However we will resolve any queries once our system is back online. 

It is also possible that our phone lines may be affected for a short period of time so please expect longer wait times in the phone queue as a result of this and we apologise for any inconvenience caused. 

Many thanks for your patience and co-operation
