Everything about our Practice Plus service makes it easier to access the care you need, when you need it.
Our team of GPs, nurses and pharmacists are dedicated to providing you with everything from a check-up, to a prescription in a single visit, putting all your healthcare needs in one place. We’re committed to providing an outstanding patient experience in every aspect of our service to you. Our team at The Junction Health Centre consists of:
All supported by our dedicated team of Patient Service Advisors overseen by the Practice Management team, committed to providing you with an outstanding, family friendly service.
Our ACPs are able to see and treat most medical conditions. They are able to prescribe medicines, request tests and investigations if you need them and can refer you to hospital. It is not only the GPs who can help you if you are unwell.
If you feel unwell or are concerned about your health outside of our opening times, please call NHS 111 or if you feel you have a life threatening emergency call 999. General health advice can be found on www.nhs.uk
To meet the needs of our patients, GP practices are working together with community, mental health, social care, pharmacy, hospital and voluntary services in their local areas in groups of practices known as Primary Care Networks (PCNs).
We have recruited new clinical roles to expand the care we provide to our patients, so you can see the most appropriate clinician quicker.
Some of the new roles we have recruited are:
We will continue to review and expand the services we offer over the coming years.
The fastest way to access our GP services is via the NHS app and/or Patient Access app. These services allow you to order repeat prescriptions, view your medical record including test results via your mobile or home computer.
Additional features include information on local health services for you or your family.
If you would like to sign up please speak to a member of the reception team who will guide you through the process. If you do not have access to a smartphone and wish to access any of the services listed above you can still call through to the practice on 0300 130 3333 to arrange an appointment.
Appointments are available Monday to Saturday as a registered patient, we offer appointments with our clinicians throughout the day, and we will call you within a specified time frame. The GP or ACP will discuss your problem over the phone and if they need to see you, they will arrange an appointment for later in the day, or a time/day which suits you. Practice Nurse and HCA appointments are available to book four weeks in advance.
Submit your symptoms or requests to our team electronically via eConsult. This online service offers around the clock NHS self-help information, signposting to services, and a symptom checker.
It’s a quick form accessed on our website or via the NHS app to ask for help or advice from one of our clinical team. You can also submit requests for administration help this way too, saving you valuable time on the phone or coming to the practice for a request.
Chronic disease management – if you have a long term condition such as diabetes, asthma, high blood pressure or a learning disability we will invite you in for an annual review with our team. This usually consists of an appointment with the nurse for a blood test and health check, then a follow up with the correct member of the team for medication review.
The Junction Health Centre is a place where medical students come to learn how to be doctors. It is important for them to talk to patients about their health and illnesses. This helps them understand how illnesses affect people and how they cope. We would be grateful if you could help us in this teaching.
We undertake training of 5th year medical students from St Georges University Hospital. The medical students are closely supervised by our GP Trainers when they interact with patients for example, they may take a history or perform a medical examination.
Please let the receptionist know if you are not comfortable with this when you book your appointments or let the supervising doctor know at the start of your consultation.
We welcome new patients to register with The Junction Health Centre who live within SW11 postcode area.
Registering with us is easy – follow the register with Practice Plus link. Once you have submitted the registration a member of the administration team will process your registration. They may need to contact you for more information so please ensure your contact details are correctly entered. Once the registration is processed you will receive an SMS or call asking you to attend a New Patient Health Check with our Health Care Assistant whereby you’ll need to bring your proof of ID and proof of address.
This is to ensure we have as much information about your health as possible. If you do need to see a clinician this appointment must be booked separately.

It is your responsibility as the patient to keep your appointment time. If you need to cancel your appointment, please do so as soon as you can so that it can be re-allocated to other patients. Non-attendance of booked appointments is closely monitored by the practice team.
It is important to keep your personal details up to date, including telephone numbers and email addresses so we can get in touch or provide remote consultations.
To make this easier you can use our website or the NHS app.
We support the ‘Zero Tolerance’ campaign for health service staff. Our practice team aim to be polite, helpful, and sensitive to all patients’ individual needs.
We expect our patients to treat our staff in an equally respectful and courteous manner.

Violence or abuse will not be tolerated, it may result in you being removed from the Practice list and, in extreme cases, the Police being contacted.
