Noticeboard

CORONAVIRUS - More information can be found (right hand column; COVID-19 Information)


We understand that with the announcement of a new lockdown there are going to be a number of patients concerned about the situation, especially those in very vulnerable risk groups and also those with children attending educational settings. The current government advice about high risk groups is available here: https://www.gov.uk/coronavirus


Further publication is due Monday and the Government will be writing affected patients. The current guidance for protecting extremely clinically vulnerable groups is available here and is a useful link to send to patients. The GP’s at the surgery have no additional information about and beyond this and are unable to help with requests for sick notes or other letters in such circumstances.


For people concerned about children attending educational settings; we understand and sympathise with the concerns around children attending school at this time, especially if a household has extremely vulnerable members. As a Practice we are very sorry, but the decisions about children attending school are not ours to make. It’s not something that we can help with. We would suggest a discussion between the people involved and the school to decide the best course of action.

Patient Access

Do you need information in a different format?

Do you need support?

Burney Street Practice offers a variety of ways to aid effective communication between the patient and all members of staff.

If you need extra support, please speak to a member of staff who will document this on your records.

Main Surgery at Burney Street

Located right in the heart of historic Greenwich our main surgery is on the doorstep of the fabulous Greenwich Park. There is a public car park opposite as well as several parking meters right outside.

We recognise that despite the ramp, the main door can be awkward for wheelchairs and buggies. If you need help, any of our staff will be happy to assist you. Should you be unable to manage the stairs for the upstairs consulting rooms, please inform the receptionists and they will arrrange for you to be seen downstairs.

There is a disabled toilet in the downstairs waiting room, which also has baby changing facilities.

Branch Surgery at The Wallace Health Centre

Our branch surgery is just a short walk away from the centre of Greenwich, in the Creekside area. As parking here is limited, with some free public bays in Glaisher Street, we would encourage attending by either public transport or on foot. Please do not park on the forecourt of the neighbouring establishment as they enforce parking for their own customers only, and you may be clamped.

We have full disabled access and all consulting rooms are on the ground floor. There is a disabled toilet in the downstairs waiting room, which also has baby changing facilities.

Interpreting Service

We can arrange interpretation and translation services in person or by phone for patients who do not speak English. Please let us know if you need this service when booking an appointment.
