Welcome to Barking Medical Group
Barking Medical Group provides the highest quality healthcare to patients at both our surgeries. Our practice is a leading practice in women's health and joint injections for arthritis in the area. We are an accredited training practice, our doctors, nurses and all our other staff are dedicated to offering a professional service and this surgery website will help us to keep all our patients up to date with news and information about our practice.
As well as a source of information about our practice, the staff and the services we provide, we hope you will use this website as a useful resource for other health-related information.
We would like to notify all of our patients that Dr Tolia will be retiring on 30th June 2015.
Dr Tolia would like to take this opportunity to thank all of the Practice patients that she has cared for over the past 31 years.
The Practice would like to wish her a happy healthy Retirement.
NAMED ACCOUNTABLE GP
From 1st April all practices are required under the 2015-2016 General Medical Services Contract to allocate a named GP to all practice patients, including children.
The named accountable GP will take lead responsibility for the co-ordination of services required. Please ask any member of the practice team who will be able to confirm the name of your accountable GP.
This does not prevent you from seeing any Doctor or Nurse of your choice. If a patient expresses a preference as to which GP they are assigned to, the practice will make reasonable efforts to accomodate this request.
PATIENTS WHO FAIL TO ATTEND FOR THEIR BOOKED APPOINTMENTS (DNA)
Our practice has a high number of DNA appointment’s, from our last practice participation meeting it was agreed that DNA appointment should be one of or practice priorities to be addressed.
We are suggesting that patients who fail to attend three appointments or more and have not made contact with the practice will be removed from our practice list.
Please note vulnerable patients will not be removed from the practice list.
Following three DNA appointments and the patient being in receipt of DNA letters telephone contact will be made by the practice. If there is no contact from the patient, they will be removed from the practice list.
We would like to invite patients to make comment or suggestions to our proposal to address the practice problem of patients who fail to attend appointments which impacts on others to book appointments.
We offer Online Services which includes:
Online Bookings: Patients can book and cancel appointments. Patients also receive reminders for their booked appointments.
Repeat Prescription Requests: Patients can request their repeat request online.
