Alexandra Surgery has an exciting opening for a Medical Receptionist/ Administrative member of staff.

We are looking for an enthusiastic and motivated person to join our growing team.

Our colleagues have come from a variety of backgrounds and many of us can speak an additional language or two.


Prior experience is helpful but not required. Training on the job will be provided.

Good communication skills and basic IT skills are essential. Team working is the key, being flexible and willing to learn will lead to success.

Ability to speak another language will be an advantage.


Hours required are: Monday to Friday - between 8 am to 1pm.

Salary will depend on experience. Starting rate of pay is £9 to £10 per hour.

Continuing education -staff may be offered access to online learning modules that the practice subscribes to.

Career development -there may be opportunity to train as a health care assistant (HCA) in future.


The premises is Covid safe.

As this is a health service provider, staff may be subject to requirements at work (for example wearing a face mask).

Please note that the successful candidate will be contingent on passing a criminal record (DBS) check.


If you have not registered a current mobile number with us, please drop us a line or give us a ring, we shall be glad to sort out an appointment for you.

The Pfizer vaccine will be available at this clinic, which will be open from 9:30am to 6:30pm.

For more ->

NEWS -there will be a SUPER SUNDAY pop-up vaccination clinic at Tottenham Spurs on 20 June.

You can walk in or pre book.

The Pfizer vaccine will be suitable for younger people as well.

The vaccination programme is co-ordinated centrally by the NHS authorities. They have set out a list of priority groups.

Your GP surgery can help you with booking when your turn comes up.

If you are not sure whether to have the vaccine and have questions about it, do talk to your doctor, nurse or have a look at the scientific information.


Over the past year we've had frequent issues with e-mail requests from our patients and carers. New technology now allows them to directly connect with the surgery computer system. This means your requests for repeat prescriptions and test results will bypass staff handling e-mail. It will be faster and more reliable.

During the first half of 2017 we have gradually phased out requests by e-mail. We have set an indicative date of 1 August 2017 when we may discontinue receiving them. We strongly encourage you to perform one-time activation of your ONLINE ACCESS account. Your temporary password is being automatically generated by the computer system and is waiting for you. If you have any trouble understanding how to do this, one of our team will be happy to assist you at the surgery or talk you through the process on the phone.

Coronavirus vaccine 2021-02-15

Vimeo About the vaccine (Haringey) 2021-02-15

The long-awaited vaccine has arrived in Haringey. These are the arrangements:

It is offered to all suitable people, but it is not compulsory.

Who can have the vaccine:

It will be given by age group. As of this week (14 December 2020) they are offering to Over 80 year olds.

Update 18.12.2020 - for husband and wife, if one is over 80, and the other is 76 plus, they can be booked at the same time.

Update 08.02.2021 - The vaccine will now be offered to those of age 65 and older, or age 55 to 64 with a high risk medical condition, or any age with a learning disability, or paid carers (with documentary proof of income).

Update 15.02.2021 - The vaccine will now be offered to those of age 65 and older, or age 40 to 64 with a high risk medical condition, or any age with a learning disability, or paid carers with documentary proof of income, or unpaid carers with electronic code in GP records.

Frontline healthcare and social care workers who are at high risk may be offered a place in special appointment slots on standby, if not all the appointments are taken up at the end of the day. If you are a health or social care worker please let your GP know where you work and your job title.

People with severe allergy (anaphylaxis) to vaccine, medicine or food in the past are advised to wait for now. 
GP will search all the medical records and review if you are safe to go ahead.

Update Monday 18.01.2021

Official advice about allergy have changed:
Allergy to food - okay
Allergy to insect bite - okay
Allergy to one known medication - okay

Allergy to an ingredient of a vaccine - NOT okay
Allergy to several medications in different groups - NOT okay
Allergy to unknown things - NOT okay

If you are in the 70 to 110 age group, were previously advised you were not okay to have vaccine, but are now okay, please ask your GP to rebook you.

Those still “not okay” can be vaccinated in a special session.

People on anticoagulation (Warfarin or Acenocoumarol) should have INR check recently, and GP will send the test report when requesting the vaccine.

Most people don't have these issues, and can be booked straight away (if you agree to have it).

Where and When to have the vaccine:

Pfizer BioNTech or Oxford Astra Zeneca vaccine is given centrally in two sites:
Morris House, 239 Lordship Lane, Tottenham, N17 6AA - this is taking bookings now
Bounds Green GP, 2 Gordon Road, Bounds Green, N11 2PF - this is starting soon

What the vaccination sites give depends on the deliveries they get from day to day.
(Remember the vaccines need special deep freezer storage)

It is best if you can make your own way there.
They are both big places, tucked away off the main road.
If you need directions, we suggest try an online map app, or just ask us!

It may be possible to arrange some transport if you cannot get there yourself.
UPDATE 11.01.2021 - NO TRANSPORT available.

For now, if you are housebound, we have to wait for arrangements. from the vaccination centres.


The vaccine needs to be given twice.

Update 01.01.2021: The second dose will be between 3 to 12 weeks after the first.

Oxford Astra Zeneca vaccine - is being rolled out in certain hospitals for close monitoring as a precaution. (There were problems during the trial)
It may come to the community soon.

This is being used in some vaccination centres, but there is no plan yet to supply directly to GP surgery.


Choice of vaccine:

We have no control over what is being used in the vaccination centre.

From our experience nearly everybody has had the Pfizer vaccine, including the senior doctors who work here!


How to get the vaccine:

It is by appointment only.

Your GP staff will book it for you via the NHS Intra-net, and let you know the date and time. This may be on the weekends or in the evenings.

What will the vaccine do?

Please read the official information NHS - Coronavirus (COVID-19) vaccine


As you are aware, the parliament voted in favour of a second National Lockdown by a majority of 478 on Wednesday 4 November 2020. The restrictions which began at 00:01 on Thursday 5 November will remain in force until 00:01 on 2 December.


At Alexandra Surgery, nothing will change. We will continue to look after our patients during this second lockdown, as we have done all the way through the pandemic. The practice is open, and has always been open, from 8am to 6:30pm on every weekday from Monday to Friday.


Our doors are closed, on instructions from NHS England in March this year. Behind closed doors, our doctors, nurse, health care assistants, ethnic health officers, clinical pharmacist and social prescriber address your health and social care needs.


Our admin team is also here, to take phone calls, process reports and requests, make appointments for you at the practice or a hospital, and help you find answers to your queries. We are also registering new patients and have bent the rules to make things easier.


Since the restrictions came in on 23 March 2020, we have seen a steady increase in the volume of work we do, although some of it is done in a different fashion. In the last four weeks, the number of consultations per week was at a similar level to that in October 2019, before the world had heard of coronavirus.


In total during the 32 weeks, we have:

carried out 9,267 consultations

reviewed and issued 7,895 repeat prescriptions, and

made 1,151 referrals to hospital.


To comply with NHS guidance, we have been following a Telephone First system. When you ask for a consultation with doctor or nurse, we will first offer you a telephone consultation. Often it is possible for the doctor/ nurse to look at what is going on by switching to a video consultation. They can do this as long as you have a smartphone with internet connection. If the doctor/ nurse and you agree that it is better to bring you into the surgery, he/she will arrange this with you.


You may book the initial telephone call by calling the reception team as usual. The desk will be staffed from Monday to Friday, from 8am to 6:30pm. The lines may be busier than before the pandemic, as people are not meant to come in person to make requests. An easier way is to use e-Consult, which is an online service open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. You can find the link from our website


You can also request repeat prescriptions, medical certificates and other help via e-Consult, by Patient Access online, or by fax.


We are always here to help if we can. During the first lockdown, many people called us for advice on coping with daily life. We are all learning as we go. However, a Social Prescriber has joined our team, her name is Karen and she is available for patients to talk to her every Friday. We also have a Network Pharmacist, Eidin, to support patients by reviewing their long-term condition and their medications.


If you have a comment or suggestion that you wish to share with us, please feel free to ask to speak to Abhi our Practice Manager. Or you may prefer to write to her by email.


We hope that everyone will keep well and stay safe during the uncertain times. We are thinking of doing health talks online and holding virtual meetings with patient groups. If you are interested to be part of this, do drop us a line and we will keep you posted.


Influenza vaccination (flu jab)

Supplies of influenza vaccine have begun to come through to GP practices. They are arriving in small batches at a time.

So we are giving them as soon as we can, but we have to prioritise those with long term conditions.

There are different vaccines for:
Age 65 and over
Age 12 to 64 (especially those with long term conditions)

Some patients may be offered in addition the Pneumococcal vaccine. This is to protect against bacteria that commonly cause pneumonia.
This is NOT related to coronavirus.
It is of course your decision whether to have any vaccine or not.

Shielding (4 November 2020)

Shielding letter (Official) 4 November 2020



Shielding (20 December 2020) - updated 5 January 2021

As you are aware, the government has designated London as a Tier 4 area, and with it imposed many restrictions that apply to everyone.

Moreover, a (third) national lockdown begins on 5 January 2021, with additional restrictions.

The government has advised people in the Clinically Extremely Vulnerable categories to further restrict their activities, for their own protection.

People are identified by the government from the NHS database. If you are among the Clinically Extremely Vulnerable categories, you will receive a letter directly from the government.

Your GP surgery is not involved in selecting who will be within the Clinically Extremely Vulnerable categories.

If you feel you should be within a Clinically Extremely Vulnerable category and have not received a government letter, then you must discuss this with your employer and come to a mutually acceptable decision. The following document may help.

Shielding advice (Alexandra Surgery) 23 December 2020




On 13.03.2020 the NHS has instructed all GP practices to start "Telephone First".

This means patients must first have a telephone consultation with the doctor. This can also be a video consultation.

If the doctor feels it is essential to see the patient in the surgery, then the doctor will arrange a face-to-face appointment. 

You can obtain health advice, request telephone consultation, repeat prescription, medical certificate or letter, or arrange administrative help, via:


available online 24 hours, 7 days a week 

Or by email

Or by phone 020 8888 2518 or 8889 0492

The service is available 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. Calls are free from landlines and mobile phones. For more information, please click here.


Self-care is the best choice to treat very minor illnesses and injuries. For colds and flu it is best to rest, keep warm, drink plenty of fluids and take painkillers such as paracetamol, ibuprofen and aspirin.

GP Services

Haringey residents can now access evening and weekend appointments with a GP, nurse or healthcare assistant at one of 4 GP hubs in the borough.

GP hubs offer the same service as your usual GP and anyone registered with a GP in Haringey can book a future or same day appointment. Staffed by experienced GPs and nurses, the service offers assessment and treatment for adults and children with minor injuries and illnesses. The GP or other professional will have access to your medical record to ensure that you receive the best possible care and support.

GP practices will be available over the bank holiday weekend.
