The Lea Surgery is regulated by the Care Quality Commission (CQC). For more information on the CQC please visit www.cqc.co.uk.
The Lea Surgery has been rated 'Good' by the Care Quality Commission.
We have tried hard to ensure that our premises offer as high a level of access for patients with physical disabilities and sensory impairment as is practical. This includes the surgery having ramped access to admit wheelchairs.
A receptionist is always available to assist patients with disabilities. We would be pleased to discuss any other reasonable adjustments we could consider – please contact the practice manager to discuss your needs.
If the patient is unable to speak English, it is important for an advocate to be present. This may be family member or friend. If no-one is available, we can book a professional advocate.
Resources for the advocacy service are limited and appointments may be delayed due to the difficulty in booking the advocate. If you do need to book an advocate please contact the advocacy service on: 0207 683 4024.
Also list the languages available from the service, link to the NHS Translation Service website.

Please note that HIV blood test results will only ever be given in person.
This statement of intent sets out our plans to provide on-line facilities for our patients by 31st March 2015 in line with the requirements of the national GP Contract
These facilities are:
The new requirements are outlined below, together with our current position:
Practices are required to promote and offer the facility for all patients who wish to book, view, amend, cancel & print appointments on-line
Practices are required to promote and offer the facility for all patients who wish to order on-line, view and print a list of their repeat prescriptions for necessary drugs, medicines or appliances
Practices are required to promote and offer the facility for patients to view on-line, export or print any summary information from their record, relating to medications, allergies, adverse reactions and any other items agreed between the practice and the individual patient.
Practices are required to enable automated uploads of any changes made to their patients Summary Care Record (SCR) on a daily basis.
Having your Summary Care Record available will provide key information about medication you may be taking, and any medication that you have a recorded allergy or adverse reaction towards. This information will only be provided to clinical staff treating you that do not have access to your full medical record.
***Please note that automatic SCR uploads will not be provided for patients who have chosen to opt-out of SCR ***
Practices are required to utilise the GP2GP facility for the transfer of patient records between practices, when a patient registers or de-registers.
The GP2GP facility provides the ability for patient records to be transferred quickly and securely from one practice to the next as a patient re-registers or de-registers & ensures that the patient record can be integrated as appropriate to ensure there is continuity of the record over time.
All GP Practices are required to declare mean earnings (i.e. average pay) for GPs working to deliver NHS services to patients at each practice.
The average pay for GPs working at this surgery in the last financial year (2014/15) was £66,031 before tax and National Insurance.
This is for 2 full time GPs and 7 part-time GPs who worked in the practice for more than six months.
