To request an appointment, you will need to complete a request using the online system, PATCHS. A doctor will read your information and you will be notified of the outcome within 24 hours. You can also use PATCHS for administrative queries such as referrals, sick notes or any other letters.


How to use PATCHS?

PATCHS requires new users to make an account. You only need to enter your details the first time you create an account. PATCHS will then prompt you to answer a few questions about your issue, typically around five. So that we can fully understand the reason for your appointment, please provide a good level of detail.

If you are using PATCHS for the first time, please watch this helpful video.

Frequently 

asked questions

Once you submit your PATCH, it will be seen by a doctor, who will allocate a member of our clinical team to deal with your issue. This healthcare professional may call you or want to see you in person. Please state your preference and availability when you complete your PATCH.
Occasionally, with the information you provide, we may be able to directly send medication to your pharmacy, order tests or make referrals.
If we require more information from you, we may reply to your PATCH with more specific questions.

If you are struggling to use PATCHS, our reception team can help you create an account and guide you through completing your first PATCH.
If you do not have internet access, please ring us on 020 3370 1940 so that our reception team can support you by completing a PATCH for you.

At Lisson Grove Health Centre our staff work together to ensure that you are seen by the best healthcare professional for your problem.
Here at the practice, we have a great team of GPs, pharmacists, nurses and healthcare assistants. So that you are seen by the right professional as quickly as possible, it is important to understand what each member of the team can do.
What are pharmacists and what do they do?
Pharmacists are experts in the medication you take. For questions relating to your medication, they are the best people to speak to.

If you take multiple medications, you will be asked to have an annual medication check so that we can continue to safely prescribe these for you. Pharmacists also carry out annual health checks for certain conditions such as asthma or COPD. We also work closely with our local pharmacists who can provide quick advice and treatment for minor illnesses.

What are nurses and healthcare assistants and what do they do?
Nurses and healthcare assistants can carry out a wide range of services. These include vaccinations, injections, wound care and dressings, blood pressure monitoring, to name a few. Our senior nurses can also see you if you are experiencing minor symptoms, such as a cough or a cold.
If you have been diagnosed with several health conditions, or have an ongoing health concern, it may be more appropriate to see a GP.

Most importantly, the team at Lisson Grove Health Centre all work together with the aim of providing you the best possible care.
Our service endeavours to provide safe, efficient care by the most appropriate healthcare professional.
