Surgery Opening Times
NOTICE TO ALL PATIENTS OF BELMONT HILL SURGERY
Practices are required under the GMS contract, to allocate a named, accountable GP to all patients, including children who will have overall responsibility for the care and support that our surgery provides to you. All new patients registering will be informed about their named GP at registration. Please ask the reception staff who your named, accountable GP is. Should you express a wish for this to be changed to another GP we will do our best to accommodate your wishes. Having an allocated GP does not prevent you seeing any other doctor in the practice.
Please telephone 020 3675 0752 to make an appointment or come to reception with your passport or driving license to sign up for our online booking system. Appointments can be booked up to four weeks in advance and new pre-bookable appointments for the following weeks become available every morning. If you need to be seen urgently please call or come down to the surgery at 8am for an appointment with the duty doctor.

The number of patients needing to see their GP is increasing, yet funding for general practice is falling year on year.
Belmont Hill Surgery is having to make savings.
We are committed to the provision of excellence in family practice, delivering high quality patient care through services which are timely, efficient, considerate and responsive to the needs of our patient population.
We are asking you to support the RCGP campaign to increase funding for general practice to 11% of the NHS Budget by 2017.
