FAQs

Register with the Moore Medical Practice
To see a doctor at the Moore Medical Practice you must register with us. Download our Registration Form, complete it at your leisure and bring it with you to your first appointment. It must be completed before we see you, and this option saves you completing it at Reception.

 

How to see your Doctor
You may consult any of the doctors. They will see you in the surgery, by appointment, which can be made by telephoning the secretaries during surgery hours which are 8:30 am – 6:00 pm. Urgent cases will be seen on the same day, otherwise you will be offered the next available time. If you cannot keep your appointment, please let us know.

 

How to speak to your Doctor on the telephone
All doctors are available to speak on the telephone in between their surgeries. All calls will be returned the same day if at all possible. If your call is urgent, please point this out to the secretary and a doctor will try and speak to you immediately.

 

How to request a Home Visit
If you are too ill to come to the surgery and require a home visit, please try and make the request before 10.30am. This allows the doctors time to plan their visits efficiently. In an EMERGENCY situation, please make it clear that you require an immediate Home Visit.

 

What to do when the surgery is closed

If you require URGENT medical attention and require advice or a home visit then please ring the Practice telephone number 020 7349 1490 – please note that there will be a charge for both telephone advice and home visits.

When you ring the Practice number 020 7349 1490 out of hours you will be given either a mobile telephone number, pager number or telephone number of the Duty Doctor/Service to contact.  Please let them know you are a patient of Moore Medical Practice so they let us know you have been in contact when the Practice reopens.

The Duty Doctor will endeavour to return your call as soon as possible, usually within one hour.  If you have had no response within that time then please try again.  It usually means the Doctor is very busy.

In case of a life threatening emergency you should always dial 999 immediately.

 

Informing Other Doctors
Information about you held by the Practice will be kept in the strictest confidence and will only be shared on a need to know basis with other health care professionals. However, it is our policy to encourage our patients to let us share information with their NHS GP.

 

Disabled Persons
The Practice provides full access for disabled patients. If you are disabled and have any special requirements, please call the reception to discuss this with our staff.

 

Chaperone Policy
The Practice has trained chaperones available by request. Please let your doctor know if you prefer to have a chaperone during your consultation.

 

Test Results
X-rays, blood and other investigation results will be given to you in writing or by telephone within a few days. If the tests are urgent, they will be telephoned through as soon as possible, and often the same day. If you have not heard for any reason, please ring the Practice staff who will ask the relevant doctor to call you.

 

Prescribing
The Practice does not have a dispensary, but the doctor will issue you a prescription, which can be taken to any pharmacy in the UK.

Please note that for all prescriptions, the practice doctors require at least 24 hours’ notice to be given. Please tell the practice staff whether you wish to collect the prescription, have it posted or would like Pharmacierge to arrange delivery for you (there is no delivery charge).

Should you require prescriptions to be faxed to a local pharmacy, please be aware that the practice policy is to charge for this service which is noted on the fees section of our website.

You can also order Repeat Prescriptions on our website.

 

Resuscitation
Should the need arise, it is Practice policy to attempt to resuscitate our patients. If you have strong feelings regarding this, please discuss the matter with your doctor.
