Thank you for all your enquiries about the COVID-19 vaccine. We are working together with other Battersea practices to set up a Battersea COVID vaccination site at the Junction Health Centre. This is a huge project, but we are hoping that vaccinations will start in early January.
As you may be aware, from the news and government announcements, the vaccine is in limited supply and it will be offered to patients in high risk/priority groups first.
We will contact the relevant patient groups to book appointments as soon as we are able to. You do not need to contact us.
We are sure that you will appreciate that we are working very hard on this at present, and we thank you for your patience.
We will keep our website updated as we receive more details from NHS England.
In the meantime, more information about the COVID-19 vaccine can be found here.
The flu vaccine is a safe and effective vaccine. It’s offered every year to help protect you from flu and its complications. Click here to find out more.
The NHS is putting in place measures to ensure the safety of our patients and healthcare team to ensure our services can continue to deliver care to those needing it during this time.
To protect our patients and staff we advise patients to call the service in advance, but please be assured that we still remain open to deliver all services at The Junction Health Centre. Please note – patients who attend the practice without prior telephone consultation will be asked to leave and call the practice to be triaged.
To reduce the risk of COVID-19 cross transmission, appointments will be carried out over the phone or via video consultation, where appropriate, unless there is a clinical need for you to come into the service. This will help minimise risk while continuing to ensure people get the care and advice they need.
On arrival, please wear a face covering and use the hand sanitiser provided. You must declare if you have any known current COVID-19 symptoms (a temperature, new cough, loss of smell or loss of taste) so that you can be directed to the correct treatment room.
Thank you for your understanding and cooperation at this difficult time.

Please do not delay getting health care. If you need urgent medical help and it is not an emergency, contact your GP or NHS 111 online or telephone NHS 111 first. During the COVID-19 pandemic it’s important that A&E is only used by those with serious or life threatening problems. There are many ways to get the right care at the right time via www.nhs.uk, your pharmacist and your GP. Your GP offers online, telephone and video consultations. If you are invited in for a face to face appointment, infection control measures are in place to keep patients and staff safe.
The Junction Health Centre is now part of the Practice Plus network; a comprehensive NHS GP service, improved to give patients a better experience whenever they need medical advice or care.
We’re committed to giving you the best possible healthcare in a way that suits today’s busy lifestyles.
That’s why we’re open every day 8am to 8pm, including bank holidays. Our new service offers NHS patients speedier and more convenient appointments, improved access to their GP or nurse and eliminates the 8am telephone queue.
Practice Plus is designed to serve patients in the local community, welcoming all ages and medical conditions. You can find us next door to Clapham Junction station. We’re just outside the Grant Road exit.
|In recognition of the barriers to healthcare access faced by people in vulnerable circumstances, including migrants, we commit to protecting the human right to health. We will take steps to ensure that everyone in our community may fulfil their entitlement to quality healthcare.|
