Clinics & Services
The practice nurses will see patients with asthma at any time during their surgery hours. Every year we offer asthmatics an asthma review. This usually involves a discussion about how well symptoms are controlled, as well as checking peak flow and inhaler technique. If it is difficult for you to attend for a review, a questionnaire can be completed - ask at reception, or download by clicking on the link below.
If you do not want a review, please inform reception and this will be added to your medical records.
The clinics are run by Dr Neil Manttan and Nurse Michele Leworthy.

IUDs and Implants
Dr Amanda Sutton and Dr Marita Koumettou are available to fit coils (IUDs), Mirena coils (IUS), and implants (Nexplanon). Please make an appointment to discuss this with either one before booking for the procedure. Please note that a double appointment is needed for any of these procedures. There is a high demand for these appointments and we may not able to offer appointments to everyone who requires an IUD. There are other local services which can be accessed at Hornsey Neighbourhood Health Centre.
