Welcome to West Green Surgery
West Green Surgery is located in Haringey and consists of 6 Full-Time GP’s (doctors) , including a female GP (doctor) , a female Practice Nurse, a Practice Manager and 3 Administrative staffs. Together we provide a full range of general practice services and run specialist clinics for pregnant women, children, diabetes and asthma sufferers. We aim to treat all our patients promptly, courteously and on complete confidence. It caters for patients over a wide catchment area including Haringey (N15, N4, N8, and parts of N17 & N22), view our catchment tool.
Electronic Prescription Service
We have started to implement electronic prescription service (EPS2) which allows you to order and pick up your repeat prescriptions from your selected pharmacist saving you trips and time. The doctor will now send your prescription electronically to your pharmacist without the need of printing on prescription paper reducing the chances of it being lost. Please sign up at your regular pharmacist to be able to access this service
West green surgery has updated its catchment area. You can use the catchment tool to check if you reside within the practice boundaries. If you live outside the catchment area or move out of the area then the practice unfortunately cannot register you. For more information
We have recently introduced online booking and for online request for your repeat prescriptions using patient EMIS access. For your login and details ask reception (1week after registering) or try registering online

If you wish to see a GP (doctor) there are a number of ways you can do this. Appointments can be made by ringing through to the surgery and making a request. If you have a particular preference for a GP (doctor) we will endeavour to accommodate your request. If you have an urgent problem or an emergency you may attend the surgery in person or telephone to see if you can be accommodated on the day.
Our Performance (Latest National GP Survey 2013)
The latest up-to-date national (MORI) GP patient survey for between March 2013 and September 2013 results have been released.
Below is a snap shot of what our patients have said. Of note more than 88% felt confidence in their doctor as well as the fact they were listened to and had their treatment and investigations explained to them.
It is showed that the surgery has listened to what our patients have said since the 2010 poll and worked towards improving our care for our patients. Within the last year we have recruited more doctors and now have a number of appointments available for our patients.
The surgery has made large improvements over the last few years and now we are working hard to maintaining an excellent level of service to all patients. Our current GP MORI polls have reflected such change.
Whilst we may not be able to tackle all your concerns every single time, we appreciate that as patients you are often very busy and have often more than 1 medical complaint. Where possible the doctors will try and attempt to address all of your issues in one consultation. Because of this there may be a short delay or wait in seeing you compared to your appointment time.
We hope to continue the good work at the surgery. We routinely offer feedback forms and questionnaires at the surgery to allow us assess and reflect on any comments or recommendations you have. We are constantly listening and strive to improve our service provision.

BMA book awards 2013 Review
Clinical Skills Explained is relevant to medical students across all years of study.However, the book was written specifically for medical students in their early years at medical school in response to the increased emphasis on clinical skills, scenarios and concepts now found in many undergraduate medical curricula. The book covers over 55 of the most common and relevant medical histories, clinical examinations and skills that all competent doctors must be able to demonstrate in their exams as well as in their practical life. The book is divided into three sections: History Taking Skills; Examinations; and Procedures. Each chapter starts by providing a short step-by-step guide, and then describes the basic background knowledge and relevant pathophysiology before moving on to a systematic approach on how to tackle the skill at hand. One of the key objectives of the book is to unify the presentation and understanding of the most common medical histories, clinical examinations and clinical skills that all competent doctors must be able to demonstrate with the understanding of how and why things are done (this ‘how and why’ element is missing from a number of other clinical skills titles). The authors have written the book to reflect how they would have liked clinical skills information to be presented when they were medical students.
Reviewed by IJOCS
There are quite a few books addressing the same topic in the current market, but this book does provide current guidelines which is a new aspect. It includes a useful, systematic breakdown of each presenting complaint, examination and practical procedure. The ‘Top Tips’ in the margins are very handy and supplement the textbook well with some ‘real life’ medical experience.

This is the best GP practice ive been to in London, over 26 years and i have been with many. Excellent GP, good at prevention, always courteous and always takes time. Not just dishing out pills.
