Coronavirus (COVID-19)

Walk-in Surgery Suspended

From Thursday 12th March, the walk-in surgery at Ridgmount Practice will be suspended until further notice due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

We are offering phone triage consultations on the day to try and lessen the need for patients to attend walk-in surgery during the COVID-19 pandemic. You will need a UK phone number for these. 

Please call the Surgery on 020 7387 6306 from 9:00am on the day Monday to Friday to speak to a receptionist.

EVERYONE must stay at home and follow the latest Government guidelines to help stop the spread of COVID-19. This includes people of ALL ages – even if you do not have any symptoms or other health conditions.

If you do need to go outside, please practice social distancing and stay 2 metres (3 steps) away from other people.

If you are high risk for COVID-19, you will receive a letter from NHS England, please follow the shielding guidance.

Please continue to stay at home if you have COVID-19 symptoms:
 • a high temperature – you feel hot to touch on your chest or back (you do not need to measure your temperature)
 • a new, continous cough – you have been coughing a lot for more than an hour, or 3 or more coughing episodes in 24 hours (if you usually have a cough, it may be worse than usual)

To protect others, please DO NOT book an appointment, or go to a GP surgery, pharmacy or hospital.

  • Obtain a COVID-19 isolation note using NHS 111 online:                                          GP surgery's do not have capacity to issue sick notes or letters for employers.
