It may not be necessary for you call us or attend for an appointment; you can submit an e-consultation with details about your condition or your administration request and you will receive a response from the practice by the end of the next working day and usually sooner.
- eConsults: submitted over the weekend will be dealt with on the following Monday.
- eConsult allows you to fill out a simple form so our team can review the information you provide and make sure the right person assists you as soon as possible. You can ask about common issues, general symptoms, request sick notes and ask for test results.
Depending on your request, we may respond online or may arrange a telephone or video consultation for you.
eConsult is safe and secure. Requests can only be submitted by the patient themselves or parents of children, so you’ll also be asked to confirm who you are before filling out the form.
Whilst we encourage our patients to come to the surgery, where we have the proper equipment and facilities available, we do appreciate this is not always possible. In this respect, if you do need a home visit, you can help us by calling reception as early in the morning as possible.
You may only request a home visit if you are house bound or are too ill to visit the practice. Your GP will only visit you at home if they think that your medical condition requires it and will also decide how urgently a visit is needed. Please bear this in mind and be prepared to provide suitable details to enable the doctor to schedule house calls.
You can also be visited at home by a community nurse if you are referred by your GP. You should also be visited at home by a health visitor if you have recently had a baby or if you are newly registered with a GP and have a child under five years.
GP Access Hubs – Evening & Weekend Appointments
Registered patients of Lambeth Walk Group Practice can access extended opening times at four specially selected GP Access Hubs in the borough.
Our GP Access Hubs offer appointments seven days a week at the following times:
- 12:00 – 20:00 Monday to Friday
- 08:00 – 20:00 Weekends and bank holidays
For further information you can visit www.lambethgpaccesshubs.co.uk.
You are very welcome to be accompanied by a trusted friend or relative at your consultation if you wish, and this is all the more important if English is not your first language, or if you feel you might not be able to express what you need clearly to the doctor or nurse.
In addition, for intimate examinations, you will be offered the choice of having another professional clinician present at the examination. This is called chaperoning.
If we can’t allocate a chaperone when you wish one to be there, then we can reschedule your examination to another time.
At Lambeth Walk Group Practice we might have patients which have a language problem in communicating with our clinical staff during consultations.
If you need an interpreter for your consultations the reception staff will be able to arrange this for most languages, providing you inform reception first.

Historically, Lambeth Walk Group practice has been owned and run by King’s College to act as a training practice for GP’s and medical students. Since 2006 the practice separated from King’s, while maintaining a close working relationship with the college.
The practice regularly trains medical students from year 1 through to year 5. It also currently partners with King’s to train international medical students and the London Deanery to train GP Registrars.
You may occasionally be asked for consent for a medical student to be present at your consultation. You are under no obligation and can of course refuse.
The practice is also regularly involved with clinical trials and pilots which often provide additional medical services to our patients. We pride ourselves on providing an excellent standard of medical care to all sectors of our community.
