New Computer System Installation
We are migrating to a new computer system on Thursday 12 September 2019. In order to facilitate this change the information held on our current system will be ‘cut’ on Thursday 5 September, which will have the following impact on our services:
Prescriptions - We will only be processing urgent prescriptions between 31 August and 12 September, therefore we request that any prescriptions that are due to be submitted within this timeframe are submitted before Tuesday 27 August 2019 in order that they can be processed early.
Online Services - Patients will lose access to online services and will need to register for the online services linked to our new system when invited to do so.
Appointments – There will be less routine appointments available in the days leading up to Thursday 12 September and very few on that actual day. Emergency appointments for urgent matters will still be available. Normal appointment availability will resume after 12 September.
Between 5 September and 12 September we will not be able to:
Send prescriptions via the electronic prescription service
Process routine referrals
Receive blood results electronically
Receive hospital letters, reports etc electronically
Register new patients
We apologise for any inconvenience caused

Patient appointments with a GP are now available between 18:30-20:00 weekdays and 08:00-20:00 weekends/bank holidays
Our patients can now be seen for routine GP appointments in new GP centres at Queen Mary's Hospital and Erith Hospital from 18:30-20:00 weekdays and 8:00-20:00 weekends/bank holidays.
These appointments should not be used for a follow up appointment, as continuity of care is important, but if you have a non-urgent problem and can’t wait for our next routine appointment, please call our receptionists who will be happy to book an appointment for you.
You will be seen by a local GP who will, with your consent, have full access to your medical records and we will receive details of the consultation automatically.
