We are a progressive doctor's surgery based in Hornchurch, Essex. We offer a traditional general practice with an emphasis on health promotion and personalised health care. Our aim is to work with our patients to achieve optimal health outcomes. We are also a teaching practice and are affiliated to St Barts and the Royal London Medical School.
We are encouraging patients to give their views about how the practice is doing e.g. what we are doing well, what we can do better and how the practice should change for the future. Find out more about our patient views forum. You can find the latest results of our 2013/2014 patient participation survey here.
Recent News & Updates
- New investment at our practice
Hornchurch Healthcare is proud to announce that we were one of the five Havering practices to be selected for an improvement grant from the Primary Care Infrastructure Fund run by NHS England to expand our premises. The practice has been awarded £132,000 to part fund the building of three additional consultation rooms and establishment of disabled access for the front of the premises. Dr Tran will also be funding the remainder of the costs of the extension with practice funds and the project will be expected to start March 2016. There will also be a refurbishment of the entire waiting room area. Both surgeries at Billet Lane will continue serving our patients as usual whilst the development is underway.
- Named allocated GP
Call patients registered at Hornchurch healthcare will have Dr Tran as the named allocated GP. Dr Tran is the senior partner and principal of Hornchurch healthcare, however you may still book to see other doctors of your choice.
- Practice Development
Our list size continues to grow and we welcome new patients.
- Recent GMS Contract Changes
Hornchurch Healthcare has implemented the following changes: 1. Registered patients can now book and amend appointments via our practice website with the Vision online service
2. Registered patients can also request repeat prescriptions via our website. Subject to development of support systems yet to be commissioned and put in place by NHS England, by 31st March 2015, we plan to be able to offer registered patients the ability to view their summary records on line. This will require NHS England to invest in appropriate software and data governance processes. We are still awaiting further guidance on this matter and will update progress on this website when this is available.
We continue to score highly in the Quality and Outcomes Framework More details about QOF and this year's results can be found on the NHS Information Centre for health and social care website.
