Meet our Team

We are a partnership of 3 GP Partners. We employ 3 Salaried GPs, and 1 Practice Nurses.

The Reception Team look after patients, their appointments, prescriptions and all the stuff that flies around - a massive amount of administration is involved in running a busy, surgery and this includes a backroom team of Workflow Administrators to handle the huge influx of correspondence and data each day.

Practice Information

Improving Health Limited PCN

The Gardens Surgery is a member of our local Primary Care Network (PCN) and GP Federation, we are called Improving Health Limited.

By working with our neighbouring practices we provide excellent, proactive and coordinated care consistently and equitably to everyone living in South Southwark.

One of the benefits of working as a network is that all of our patients have access to GP appointments from 8am to 8pm 365 days per year at Tessa Jowell Health Centre.

This is not a walk-in service. An appointment can be booked at this service by a clinician at your practice if it is right for you. For some patients, for instance, those with more complex needs, it is more suitable to be seen at your own practice. You would also need to agree to share your medical records with the hub on arrival. Ask at the practice for more information.

Patient Participation Group

The provision of good access to high-quality patient care for the local population is at the heart of how the practice works. There is an active patient participation group (PPG) which helps to organise patient events on health-related topics as well as providing feedback to the practice staff. For more information please see our patient group pages

GP Patient Survey

The GP Patient Survey is an independent survey run by Ipsos MORI on behalf of NHS England. The survey is sent out to over two million people across England. The results show how people feel about their GP practice.
