All patients registered at Sydenham Green Group Practice have a named doctor who has overall responsibility for your care and support. If you choose to see another doctor at the surgery you are entirely free to go on doing so exactly as before.
Please call at the practice on any day we are open but at least half an hour before we close. We will ask you to provide documents etc..
Patients are accepted purely on eligibility and address and not on their health, age, gender, religion or other criteria If your application is accepted you may be asked to make an appointment with a nurse for a check-up. This allows us to check a few things like your blood pressure and to make sure we have a picture of your previous medical history and also just to say hello! Please bring a urine sample with you.
