There is a practice
manager and 7 reception staff, who deal with registrations, patients' appointments,
handling of medical records, repeat prescriptions and provide secretarial services
to the individual doctors.
We have one practice nurse,
Fiona McCabe-Hughes, who is available to provide help and advice on a variety
of health issues, including contraception, travel advice and travel vaccinations.
She is specially trained to assist in the running of our asthma, diabetic, hypertension
and immunisation clinics. Additionally, individual appointments with the practice
nurse can be booked through reception.
Home visits are at the discretion of the doctors.
If you are housebound or too ill to come to the surgery, please request the visit
before 10.30am. If possible, children with temperatures or rashes are best seen
in the surgery where equipment is available for tests. Inform the receptionist
who will make sure your child is kept separate from other patients. Please telephone
020 8427 1213. We regret that we cannot make visits for social reasons, eg no
partners of the Circle Practice have joined a co-operative of Harrow doctors called
HARMONI. This service is based at Northwick Park Hospital where you may be asked
to take yourself/your family to see a local general practitioner. For those patients
who are housebound or too ill to attend Northwick Park Surgery a visit will be
arranged at the discretion of the HARMONI doctor. Full and clear instructions
for the above service can be found on the message service when you telephone 020
