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:

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
During the next few months you may receive an important letter from Brent and Harrow Contractors services. This letter requires your action or you could be de-registered from the practice.
To assist the trust to carry out its responsibility for providing effective health-care for local residents, we would be grateful if you could complete the letter in the reply paid envelope provided and return it to the trust.
If the Brent and Harrow Contractors 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.
- A room available for access by disabled people
- A room available for nappy changing upon request
- Breastfeeding - if a room is vacant, it will be made available upon request
- A room to discuss matters in private on request
- A comfortable waiting area (our practice is cleaned and checked every day)
The practice has done its utmost to be easily accessible and user-friendly for our disabled and wheelchair-bound patients.
These are designated parking spaces in the car park at Eastcote Surgery, though unfortunately there is no parking for patients other than off-street parking.
A wheelchair is available for those with difficulty in walking - this can be borrowed through our reception staff.
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.
If you experience any problems please speak to our reception staff, who will do their utmost to assist you.
Patient Car Parking Facility
A car park is provided for patients who are visiting the surgery, with designated parking spaces for the use of disabled patients.
Please park only in the spaces provided and ensure you are not blocking the exit of a doctor who may be called out on an emergency.
Please note that no responsibility can be accepted by the practice for damage caused to any vehicle using the car park.
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.
Food & Drink
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.
Please do not use your mobile phone in the surgery. It is disruptive to patients who are in the waiting room.
