Online Services

West4GPs has a facility allowing patients to book routine appointments and order a repeat prescription on the internet. This enables patients to book and cancel appointments or order repeat prescriptions at a time to suit. To access this service please contact the main reception desk who will organise your online registration and issue a password.

Prescription Request

If you think that you may need a prescription medication, please make an appointment with the Doctor. If you have previously been given a prescription for a straightforward condition, such as hay fever, the doctor may be able to issue this without having to see you. Please ask the Receptionist. The local Pharmacies are able to give advice on non-prescription medication.

Repeat Prescription

We have a computerised repeat prescription service. Repeat prescriptions are normally for patients with long term conditions who receive regular treatment. The Doctor will decide whether you are able to have a repeat prescription. From time to time we will ask you to make an appointment for a medication review with either the Doctor or the Practice nurse. We may not be able to continue to issue prescriptions if you are overdue for a review. This is for your safety. We do this to monitor your illness and medication. You are able to order a repeat prescription by coming into the surgery when the reception is open, by post or online here.

We cannot take repeat prescription requests over the telephone or by email unless you are a housebound patient. Wherever possible please give the full name of any medications that you are requesting to avoid confusion.

Please allow two working days for repeat prescription requests to be processed.

You are unable to use this facility to request medication that does not appear on your repeat list on screen. For items not included please make an appointment to see a clinician.

Referral Centres

As part of Hounslow CCG we have the option of a wide range of specialist centres. The policy is that we use specialist centres where we believe the patient is being offered the best service and quality of care, as guided by our local GP Commissioning Group.

The hospitals we most commonly use include: Charing Cross Hospital, Hammersmith Hospital, Queen Charlottes Hospital, West Middlesex Hospital and Chelsea and Westminster Hospital.

Medical Student Training

West4GPs is a student training practice, assisting medical students in their preparation to become a doctor. At present, medical students from Imperial College, King’s College and occasionally other medical schools are taught in some surgeries. We also undertake training of other healthcare professionals.

Travel Consultations

West4GPS offer travel consultations.  We respectfully request that patients organise their vaccinations around 6-8 weeks prior to travel.  Patients will need to book a 30 minute consultation with our Practice Nurse, completing a travel questionnaire prior to the appointment.  It would also be useful to bring in copies of any previous vaccinations records that you have.

We cannot provide emergency travel appointments, but where possible will endeavour to offer the most convenient appointment.

To help with your travel health requirements we have listed a couple of websites on our resources page that you may find useful.
