DR WOLFSON IS RETIRING
Dr Wolfson is retiring on 30th June 2020 after working for Claremont Medical Centre for over 33 years. If you would like to pass on your best wishes, please email us at email@example.com
WE ARE STILL OPEN
If you or your child is unwell and you need advice from the practice then please telephone us. Please do not delay contacting us and seeking advice if you need it. During the COVID 19 pandemic, don't come to the practice - contact us first.
DOCTORLINK - FOR ADVICE AND APPOINTMENTS
Claremont Medical Centre would like to invite you to join DoctorLink. This is our new online service where you can access advice and appointments online.
Registration is simple and you can register here.
For all appointments, we ask that you undertake a symptom assessment through DoctorLink. The symptom checker will ask you a number of questions to help identify your problem. The outcome of your assessment will direct you to the right treatment, whether emergency care, your GP, nurse or self care.. If your outcome indicates that an appointment is required, you simply click on the request appointment link. Once the request has been submitted, you will then be contacted by the Practice Team to arrange an appointment. The information you provide will be shared with our clinical team (where appropriate) and will assist in providing robust information of your problem to the required clinical team member prior to your appointment.
GIVE HIV THE FINGER
Kingston Council is encouraging a proactive HIV testing offer from general practice and other specialist services in Kingston. Did you know…
More than two out of every 1000 Kingston residents aged 15-59 are infected with HIV
Every year, between 10-20 Kingston residents are newly infected with HIV
One in twelve people across England do not know that they are infected
We have however seen new HIV diagnoses fall for a third consecutive year in London due to combination prevention - increased uptake and frequency of testing, treatment and knowledge around U=U (undetectable=untransmittable), and ongoing condom use
But 44% of all HIV diagnoses in Kingston were late in 2018. Late diagnosis results in poorer long-term health outcomes and those with a late diagnosis are ten times more likely to die early
Cervical Screening saves lives
Cervical screening can stop cancer before it starts by preventing any potentially harmful cells from developing. If you are aged 25 - 64 and have not had a recent smear test please book an appointment with the nurse today. You can now book a cervical screening appointment online, through the NHS App or Patient Access.
