  • GP Surgery

    Appointments can be booked with a GP for medical problems.

    There are pre-bookable appointments which can be booked at least 4 weeks ahead.

    There are also some appointments which can only be booked on the day. These are for urgent medical problems which need to be seen by a GP on the same day.

    All GP appointments are now 15 minutes long. This is an unusually long time. The reason for this is that enables GPs to deal with more than one issue at the consultation and reduces the need for repeat appointments.

    You can use the on-line booking service which is accessed at the Online Access page. This is a real time service so as daily appointments are released at 8am, they become available to book on line. You can also book ahead for at least 4 weeks. Once you have access you will be able to book appointments on-line. You will also be able to order repeat medication,access your Summary Care Record and request access to your full coded medical records.

    There is a 24 hour appointment service called Patient Partner which allows you to book, change and cancel appointments using your telephone keypad. When you call the Surgery number 0207 834 5502 you will be given the option to use this service (option 1).

    You can book through the Reception Team on the telephone (option 2) or in person between the hours of 8am and 6pm. Appointments can be booked at least 4 weeks in advance.

    If you specifically require a same day urgent appointment you can ring or attend the surgery from 8am or use the on-line booking service. These appointments are allocated on a first come first served basis.

    Skin Rejuvenation

    Anti-wrinkle Botox available and administered by a trained doctor.
    Details:

    Procedures conducted by Dr Nic Andela MBChB, DA(SA):

    Anti-Wrinkle Injections:
    Growing older means the skin ages and looses collagen elasticity that made it smooth and bright when we were young wrinkles can begin to appear. Today’s life style can have an impact on your skin and some factors mean we can age quicker or more dramatically.

    Botulinum toxin A or ‘Botox’ injections can help reduce and delay the signs of ageing in the skin by reducing the appearance of wrinkles and delays the wrinkle etching process that inherently occurs over time, making skin appear younger and smoother.

    Of all non-surgical treatments, Botox injections are the most performed procedures within private practice.

    How does Botox injections work?
    Botox works by relaxing the facial musculature, which causes the wrinkles in the face to dissipate.

    How is it administered?
    Botox is injected directly into anatomically selected muscles in the face causing wrinkles to dissipate and over time the skin looks more youthful and smooth.

    Practitioners tend to treat the frown lines between the eyes, which we call the 11 o’clock lines, the forehead wrinkles and crow’s feet.

    Is it safe to have Botox?
    It is a safe technique that is also very effective with minimal side effects.

    Some patients experience minor bruising in the areas where injections have been given but this is easily treated with arnica gel. Bruising only lasts a few days and otherwise there are few side effects. Thank fully anaphylaxis is very rare.

    How long will Botox last?
    Contrary to popular belief, the effects of Botox are not actually immediate and it usually takes between 3-7 days for effects to set in, and the maximum effect should be most noticeable around 14 days after the treatment.
    Botox usually lasts between 3 and 6 months, after this period we recommend that the treatment should then be repeated to continue the effects. Patients do find that with repeat treatments the effects last longer, meaning less Botox treatments are needed over time.

    Injectable Botox Prices:
    • 1 area £195 3 Treatment course £537
    • 2 areas £295 3 Treatment course £825
    • 3 areas £395 3 Treatment course £1100
    • Consultation £100 redeemable against an injectable treatment.
    • Free top up.
