Welcome to The Muswell Hill Practice
This website is here to provide clear and helpful information for our patients in an easy and convenient format. Please see the menu above for more information. It has been designed with patients' needs uppermost, from checking surgery times to letting us know what you think of us. Our patient participation group has given feedback on the content and we thank them for this.
Please see our practice booklet here.
Our dedicated team is here to treat all primary care needs from specialist management of long-term conditions to minor aliments, and we offer clinics covering a wide range of healthcare issues. Advanced technology also means that you can now do a lot of things from the comfort of your home such as order a repeat prescription, make or cancel an appointment through signing up to Patient Online Access.
Partners in Care
Once registered, patients and healthcare professionals work together to ensure that the most appropriate care is achieved. This partnership philosophy extends even further and our active patient group exists to make sure that what the practice offers is in accord with our patients' needs.
Changes to Data Processing
Important update on data processing changes for practices using EMIS Web
From 10 June 2019 EMIS Web started migrating practice patient data storage to Amazon Web Services (AWS).
What does it mean?
A data processor acting on our behalf, EMIS Health, is changing certain technical aspects of the way in which it delivers services to us and as part of this transition it will be moving the data which it hosts on our behalf from its own data centre to a third party data centre, which is owned and operated by Amazon Web Services (AWS).
Delivery of the services is subject to the terms of the GP Systems of Choice Framework (GPSOC) which is managed by NHS Digital on behalf of the Secretary of State for Health.
As detailed above, the data (which includes special category data (i.e. health data) which is collected via our clinical IT system and which forms the patient’s medical record will be stored in a third party data centre (which will act on the instructions of EMIS Health, who in turn will act in accordance with instructions received from (or on behalf of) ourselves as the relevant controller pursuant to our call off contract under the GPSOC framework or as otherwise documented).

Did you know that you can get appointments at local practices in the evening and on weekends? We work with our local federation to be a part of this.
Check out this service video which gives the hub locations and explains the booking process for patients. Here is more information GP hub information.
The GP Hubs can help reduce the number of unnecessary A&E attendances and also provide more flexibility for patients, by offering both evening and weekend appointments.
