These messages will be responded to within 48 hours and you must actively log on to view this. You need to register in person at the practice for this service. Please bring a form of photo ID to register.  If you request a prescription and it is rejected please contact us.

We have created an online questionnaire to gain patient views on our services and to target areas of improvement. The questions have been compiled with input from our patient group BPSPLG. We would really value your thoughts.

Physiotherapy

Physiotherapy is a key service for those with physical impairments resulting from injury or disease. Physiotherapy aims to help patients regain their full physical abilities or make best use of impaired function. A physiotherapist uses their skills to assess and treat conditions through the application of specialist techniques. In some cases they advise patients how to self manage their condition/symptoms using home programmes and health education/information.

A physiotherapy service is provided at Balham Park Surgery by a physiotherapist from St George's Hospital on a Friday. If you feel you may benefit from physiotherapy please make an appointment to discuss your symptoms with your GP. They can then advise you on how to access the service. You will either be seen at the surgery or at St George’s Hospital. However, some services such as women’s health, paediatric physiotherapy and neurological physiotherapy are based at St George’s Hospital. Should you require these services or there is a significant waiting list at the surgery you will be seen at St George’sHospital.
