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.

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