Important New Changes
From 1st of June 2018, the option for ordering repeat prescription on the Surgery’s website it has been transferred to EMIS Web (our IT system), which will go directly to the Doctor, hence avoiding any delays.
Following this, we are kindly inviting you to contact the Reception Staff and to ask for the new on-line user details, which will enable you to send your prescription request directly to the doctor.
What can I do online?
Our clinical software provider (EMIS Health) has developed an online software called Patient Access which allows patients to:
- Book or cancel an appointment
- Order repeat prescriptions
- Change your contact details
- Send secure messages to your practice
This excellent service is also available as a free App which can be downloaded on certain smart phones including the iPhone. Register for an online Patient Access account now.
Please contact the surgery and find how they can provide the log-in details for you.
The On-line service does not replace the traditional ways of contacting the GP practice, over the phone or in person. You can book and cancel appointments any time of the day, order your repeat prescriptions from home or from work, save yourself a trip to the GP practice.
The Surgery telephone lines open daily from 8:00 (Mon-Fri).
The Surgery door is open daily from 8:30 (Mon-Fri).
The Surgery closes daily at 18:30 (Mon-Fri).

Training and Teaching
Here at Shaftesbury Medical Centre we have a keen interest in the teaching and training of future healthcare professionals. Dr Nizamuddin teaches medical students from Royal London & St Bartholomew's Medical School.
We thank all the patients who have kindly agreed to participate in the teaching and training of our students. Consent will always be obtained from our patients and patient choice will be adhered to.
We have also been approved as a GP Training Practice by the London Deanery (Health Education North West London) to train qualified doctors training to become GPs. Dr Musa is the approved GP Trainer for the Northwick Park GP Training Scheme. Both Dr Musa and the Practice have to undertake re-approval visits periodically to maintain Training Status and ensure that standards are being met.
