Heart Disease & Diabetes Monitoring
The Practice Nurse carries out Chronic Disease reviews aimed at patients with Heart disease and Diabetes annually. These are 30mins appointments aimed at discussing disease control and lifestyle measures.
We will write to you to offer you an appointment to monitor your condition, carry out health checks and arrange any appropriate investigations prior to your appointment. We also run regular audits to ensure that the measures we are implementing are effective and therefore if you are asked to participate in any audits, your co-operation will be very much appreciated.

This is a free, confidential service for smokers who live, work or who are registered with a GP based in the London Borough of Wandsworth. It offers free help, support and access to stop smoking medications, including NRT and greatly increases one’s chances of giving up smoking for good.
For friendly and confidential advice and support you can give us a call to book an appointment.
The Mitcham Lane site is a Designated Yellow Fever Centre but both sites offer a comprehensive range of travel vaccinations. Our practice nurse, Maria, will be happy to advise you about the vaccinations required for your trip and plan a vaccination schedule for you. Please arrange your appointment with the practice nurse.
Nurse & HCA
Our nurse and healthcare assistant also see patients for a range of conditions including the following:
Dressings, phlebotomy, ear syringing, vaccinations (both routine and travel), cervical smears, blood pressure, diabetic, heart disease and asthma checks, dietary advice, smoking cessation, spirometry, ECG’s, new patient health checks, removal of sutures, Chlamydia and HIV Screening, NHS health checks.
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 - as a second appointment will be required with the practice nurse to actually receive the vaccinations. These vaccines have to be ordered as they are not a stock vaccine. Your second appointment needs to be at least 2 weeks before you travel to allow the vaccines to work.
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.
Travel Health Questionnaire
To help us offer the appropriate advice, please fill out the online form before coming to see the nurse.
Travelling in Europe

Some services provided are not covered under our contract with the NHS and therefore attract charges. Examples include the following:
The fees charged are based on the British Medical Association (BMA) suggested scales and our reception staff will be happy to advise you about them along with appointment availability.
If the GP or other named member of the primary health care team are of the opinion that you need hospital treatment or specialist care elsewhere, they will ask you if you have any preference for the referral.
If you would like time to think before deciding where you would like to have the treatment, you will be offered the option of calling the practice later and telling the doctor of your decision.
