To make an appointment with a GP or a nurse via reception, please telephone 020 8772 8772 or ask at reception. If more than 1 person needs to be seen, please book a separate appointment for each individual.
You can usually choose which GP you would like to see. At Balham Park Surgery, we try to enable patients to see the same doctor whenever possible as we believe that this provides patients with better care. This is particularly helpful if you are presenting with something that you have already consulted about. Sometimes it might not be possible or appropriate to see the same doctor, for example if the doctor is away and if you feel that your problem cannot wait, or if you are advised to see another doctor in the surgery who has a special interest and skill in a specific area. The receptionist will advise you if needed.
