WELCOME to .....
South View Partnership
South View Partnership was formed in April 2014 by the merger of two practices, who had previously worked closely together from this building for over 40 years.
The surgery is open between 8.00 am and 6.30 pm Monday to Friday. We are also open on Saturday mornings for pre-booked appointments only. The surgery is closed on Sundays and public holidays.
Surgeries are held every morning and most afternoons and evenings.
Consultations are by appointment only and can be made in person at reception or by telephoning the following numbers:- 020 8460 1945 or 020 8460 1932
OFFERING AND PROMOTING PATIENT ONLINE SERVICES
South View Partnership doesn’t currently offer patients the opportunity to book appointments on line, but we are hoping to have this facility available by November 2014. Once this is up and running we will then be able to include the ability for patients to request repeat prescriptions on-line, which we hope to have up and running by December 2014.
We also plan to offer patients facilities to view online, export or print any summary information from their record, relating to medications, allergies, adverse reactions and any other items agreed between the practice and individual patient. We hope to have this up and running by February 2015. This date is subject to the necessary NHS GP systems and software being available to the practice by NHS England.
We will publicise and promote our online services to our patients through the practice website, practice waiting room leaflets, posters and the Patient Participation Group. If you wish to be kept up to date of progress on these issues please email us on email@example.com
All change at South View
In August this year, Dr Mary Matthews retired after 35 years at the surgery and Dr Nicola Payne resigned to focus on her work as Assistant Medical Director with NHS England London South. We shall all miss them!
The partnership has therefore recruited two new partners - Dr Kelly O'Loughlin and Dr Nick Merritt - and a new salaried Gp to join the team and help us look after the rehabilitation beds at Lauriston House - Dr Noim Amin.
Welcome to the new team!
Important Information .
Confidential information from your medical records can be used by the NHS to improve the services offered so we can provide the best possible care for everyone. This information along with your postcode and NHS number but not your name, are sent to a secure system where it can be linked with other health information. This allows those planning NHS services or carrying out medical research to use information from different parts of the NHS in a way which does not identify you.
You have a choice. If you are happy for your information to be used in this way you do not have to do anything. If you have any concerns or wish to prevent this from happening, please speak to practice staff or ask at reception for a copy of the leaflet “How information about you helps us to provide better care.

Saturday Morning Surgeries
ideal for those who cannot attend during the week
The surgery opens for routine doctor appointments on Saturday mornings. Although we are not allowed to make this an exclusively 'commuter surgery', we do encourage those who can attend at other times to make use of mid-week appoirtments. Thank you.
Appointments are available by pre-booking and other services provided by reception, secretarial and nursing staff are unfortunately not be available – i.e. no nurse appointments, repeat prescriptions or general enquiries eg regarding results, referrals.
Urgent appointments on Saturdays are provided by the out-of-hours service EMDOC as usual. Please do not come to the surgery without an appointment and expect to be seen.
