Welcome to Rutland House Surgery

The current premises which house the practice have been a place of healing since it was built in 1888. On this land was a holy well after which Muswell Hill had been named. The well had become a place of healing pilgrimage after a 12th century Scottish king was cured after a visit to the "spring of fair water". And so it remains today that people visit the practice for the same reasons they have for centuries - health and well being, now under the care of Dr Hatjiosif and her team who acquired the premises in 1992.

 

Covid-19 Vaccination Information

 

The NHS is currently offering the COVID-19 vaccine to people most at risk from coronavirus. The coronavirus (COVID-19) vaccine is safe and effective. It gives you the best protection against coronavirus. For more details please click on -  Covid-19 Vaccine

We have been notified that 2nd vaccinations previously booked into Lordship Lane or Bounds Green must be cancelled as per the government guidance.  Under current rules, patients will now receive their second dose between week 10 and 12 after the first dose.  All patients will be contacted to inform them of the cancellation and will be contacted again within the next 9 weeks to book the 2nd vaccination.

Please do not call the practice or the service at this stage, we need to keep our phone lines open for urgent appointments. We do not know when vaccine will be resupplied so cannot book you in at this stage. However, if you have not heard 10 weeks after your first vaccine, you are able to call the service to check progress on 07584 182 181. We will update you when we receive further information. 

The Covid vaccination campaign has been very positive so far. We have successfully booked 95% of our eligible patients. If you are aged over 50 and haven't been vaccinated, please contact the surgery to book an appointment for your Covid vaccination. We are also booking the Extremely Clinically Vulnerable patients, you will need to be instructed by the government to shield in order to receive the vaccination and you will have to take a copy of the shielding letter to the vaccination center.  Please note that you will have to attend either Lordship Lane Health Centre or Bounds Green Group Practice for your vaccination.

Coronavirus - Information for Patients

If you would like to book an appointment or have any other queries please ring the surgery. You will now be offered a telephone appointment with the doctor first and if the doctor needs to see you, you will be offered a face to face appointment. You may be asked to wait outside on occasions when the patient waiting room is full, please do not worry as the reception team will call you back inside when it is your turn to see the doctor/nurse. 

We kindly ask you to wear your face mask or face covering when you attend the surgery. Please stay two meters apart from others in order to stop the spread of coronavirus. 

Please ring the surgery if you need more information.

Please see our dedicated Coronavirus Information Page for latest news.

 

Facemask Exemption Letters

In England, you must by law wear a face covering on public transport and in shops and supermarkets as of 24 July 2020.

The Government guidance suggests there is no requirement for evidence for exemption. It should be sufficient for someone to declare that they are eligible for an exemption directly with the person questioning them (eg bus driver).

Practices are therefore NOT REQUIRED to provide letters of support for those who fall under the list of exemptions, or to those who do not fall under the list of exemptions.

Some transport providers are providing evidence of exemptions themselves, see for example this information from First Bus and Arriva.

For more information please visit the government website regarding facemask use.
