The practice is aware of current issues regarding telephone access at North Street Medical Care. The issue is with our telecoms provider Premier Choice who are working to to rectify the problem. This will mean a significant improvement over the coming weeks. Unfortunately despite our administrative staff and clinicians working very hard, the phone system is causing significant issues.

Junior Doctors Strikes
North Street will be fully supporting our 2 junior doctor GP trainees as they take strike action - who will be present for emergency care only
- 26 - 28 April 2016 Emergency care only between 8am on Tuesday 26 April and 8am on Thursday 28 April (48 hours)
While we regret the inevitable disruption that this will cause, junior doctors have clearly been left with no alternative but to consider strike action due to the Government’s continued threat to impose a contract that is unsafe for patients and unfair for doctors. There will, inevitably, be disruption to national GP services as a result of the industrial action. However, the partners, clinical staff and administrative staff will all be present to ensure that patient care does not suffer
Please do not go to A&E unless you have a serious, life threatening illness or injury.
If you need a same day urgent appointment you can be seen by the new late night and weekend GP service run by local NHS GPs. To book an appointment direct simply call 020 3770 1888 after 2pm weekdays, 9am weekends.
Ask your pharmacist – they can help treat lots of common conditions, with no wait.
Call NHS 111 – Don’t know where to go? When you need help fast but it’s not a 999 emergency
