Following the recent Coronavirus pandemic, on advice from NHS England we are converting all of our face to face consultations with a Doctor to telephone consultations. If you currently have a routine appointment booked, this has been changed to a telephone consultation. The doctor will call you as close to your appointment time as possible. Please do not come into the surgery. Many thanks for your understanding.
In order to protect patients, all unnecessary visits to the surgery are to be avoided. You can no longer book a face to face appointment without speaking to a clinician. Telephone consultations will be available via calling reception. If you are feeling unwell with continuous cough or High temperature, NHS England advice is to self-isolate at home for 7 days without any testing for coronavirus, regardless of travel history or contact with confirmed cases for 7 days. If your condition has not improved after 7 days and have not sought medical advice please access NHS 111 services online to complete on-line risk assessment https://111.nhs.uk/covid-19 or via telephone, as this WILL NOT be managed by the medical centre. Please see link below regarding information for the public about coronavirus
We appreciate your patience at this challenging time Kings Road & Eastcote Surgery
Welcome to the Kings Road Medical Centre and Eastcote Surgery. Our aim is to provide the highest quality medical care and a full range of medical services together with special clinics designed to promote optimum healthcare amongst our patients. This website explains how we organise the practice to achieve that goal.
History of the Practice
The surgery was started in the 1930s by Dr Jude Welling. At that time, including Kings Road Medical Centre, there were 12 sites in total. During the following years they were slowly sold off leaving only seven sites during the 1960s. In the 1980s only two sites remained, Kings Road and Eastcote Surgery. The surgery registered patients are split 60/40. We have a mixture of patients from various multicultural backgrounds.
Please be aware that from 1st March 2014 GP Practices across England will soon be required to supply patients personal and confidential medical information, on a regular and continuous basis, to the Health and Social Care Information Centre (HSCIC). The data upload is due to commence in March 2014 and all households should receive a leaflet "Better information means better care" through their letterbox about this in January.
If you would like more information and to print off opt out forms go to:
www.medconfidential.org/how-to-opt-out and www.nhs.uk/caredata and www.hscic.gov.uk/patientconf
Our practice is contracted by the local Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) to provide Medical Services for patients within the local community.
Important Notice To Practice Patients

If they do not hear from you and if we cannot verify that you are still an active patient your name may be removed from the practice list. The trust does not want to incorrectly remove you from your GP’s list so please do respond to this letter as quickly as possible but at latest within 14 days receipt.
If your address or other personal details have changed recently please inform the practice.
Please speak to the receptionist if you have any questions regarding this notice.

An induction loop is available to help the hard of hearing have clearer conversations. This can also be provided for individual consulting rooms when necessary. Please inform reception staff in advance that the induction loop will be required.
There are also toilet facilities for the disabled at Kings Road Medical Centre.

Patient Car Parking Facility
There is no longer car park available at Eastcote Surgery due to the rebuild.
No car parking facility is available for patients other than off-street parking.
We would ask all our patients to observe a few simple rules when they come to the surgeries:
All dogs, with the exception of assistance dogs, should be left outside the building.
The building is a non-smoking building and we request that this be honoured.

We would request that patients do not eat or drink whilst waiting for their appointments. A cup of water may be obtained from reception on request.
