HOW TO REQUEST YOUR REPEAT MEDICATION
HOW WE SHARE YOUR MEDICAL INFORMATION
For more info go to website: http://www.westlondonccg.nhs.uk/patientrecord
The doctors are willing to refer you for private treatment if necessary, but private medical insurance forms will not be signed unless the patient was seen by the doctor at Emperors Gate Surgery first and referred on by that doctor. There is a charge for this form to be signed.
The partners in the practice have made a decision not to provide any private medical services for payment. They aim to concentrate fully on providing as high a standard as possible within the NHS. Residents in this area often have contact with private medical providers, or come from countries that have very different systems. We therefore wish to make it clear how the practice manages the interface between private and NHS care.
If you wish to consult with a specialist, especially if you intend to claim on private medical insurance, please make an appointment to discuss referral with one of the doctors. This can sometimes be discussed over the telephone, but it cannot be discussed after your consultation with the specialist. We will only prescribe on the NHS medicines that have been recommended by a specialist following referral by the practice.
If you wish to consult a private GP, please note that it is our view that it is in your best interests to have one primary care doctor and your records in one place. A second opinion is available within the practice by appointment with another doctor – we suggest one of the partners for this purpose. Under no circumstances are we able to prescribe medication if we do not hold full responsibility for your care. If we become aware that you are receiving treatment from another GP outside the practice we will write to you requesting clarification, and make arrangements to remove you from our list. This is necessary not only from the point of view of the best care for you, but also because of government expectations from the practice in the area of screening and preventative treatments. If you wish to discuss any issues around private medicine, please consult with one of the partners.
The doctors and nurses offer advice by appointment regarding diet, exercise, stress, alcohol, and other risk factors to your health.
Dr King & the practice nurse hold a monthly diabetic clinic. Diabetic patients will receive an invitation or reminder to book an appointment in the clinic. Monitoring of each patient’s condition is carried out & advice given, where necessary, with regards to diabetes.
As soon as you are aware that you are pregnant, make an appointment with the doctor who will take a history and carry out some general health checks before referring you to a local hospital of your choice. You will be given a shared care programme enlisting subsequent antenatal care.
Minor operations can be performed in our treatment room. Please consult with your doctor first who will then arrange for you to be given an appointment, if appropriate, in the once monthly held minor surgery clinic.
The practice nurses offer smears, pre-natal counselling, breast awareness and family planning, as well as blood tests and blood pressure checks. The NHS recall system invites women who are registered with a GP for regular smear tests. Women are routinely recalled every three to five years. It is therefore important that all women ensure their GP has their correct name and address. Women who have not had a recent cervical test may be offered one when they attend their GP or family planning clinic on another matter, or can book an appointment with the practice nurse.
Dr King provides contraceptive services – implants and coils. If you are interested, please book a telephone consultation to discus this further.
The Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease clinic is run quarterly to demand. The nurses check and assess each individual patient’s condition. Patients with COPD will receive an invitation to book an appointment in the clinic.
The practice nurses are able to offer advice and travel vaccinations by appointment. Some of the vaccinations are not available under the NHS and a fee will be charged for these.
This clinic gives advice and treatment to patients trying to give up smoking. This is a six-week programme: half an hour for the initial appointment followed by a series of 15 minute appointments.
Flu vaccinations are available from late September to December to the over 65s and those with chronic illness and are given during special clinic sessions by the nurses. Please contact reception at this time for dates.

A counsellor, Cate Lyon, is linked to the practice and this service is now funded through the NHS and available by referral from the GP. Counselling offers a first point of contact specifically for those patients with emotional or psychological problems. There is a substantial psycho-social element within general practice consultations because people generally seek help initially from their doctor.
By employing a counsellor we are able to offer patients a treatment choice and ease of access to professional counselling service within a primary care setting. A counsellor can help the process of change by helping people to express their feelings, clarify their thoughts, re frame their problems and consider potential solutions so that they can understand themselves better and be able to manage their lives more effectively
Our NHS referrals are now made using the Choose & Book system where available. If you need to see a specialist for further treatment you will be offered from a choice of at least four local hospitals or clinics. A leaflet entitled ‘Choosing your Hospital’ is available in our waiting room at www.nhs.uk which provides information on local services. Choose & Book also enables you to book your chosen appointment date & time using a specialist electronic booking service either online via the internet or by telephone. More information is available from www.chooseandbook.nhs.uk
If you require any vaccinations relating to foreign travel you need to make an appointment with the practice nurse to discuss your travel arrangements. This will include which countries and areas within countries that you are visiting to determine what vaccinations are required.
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. Please note that vaccines take 2 weeks to be effective.
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. We are also able o provide prescriptions for malaria prophylaxis, (Malarone, Doxycycline, and Mefloquine), which are charged at a rate of £10 per prescription.
Travel Vaccination Fees
Hepatitis B - £40 per dose
Yellow Fever - £70 per dose
