How Contacting our GPs Online Works
WELCOME TO THE LAWSON PRACTICE
We hope this website will be useful to existing patients as well as to those joining the practice.
The Lawson Practice is an NHS practice and as such does not treat private patients. Our doctors and nurses take pride in offering the highest standard of patient-centred healthcare. We run many clinics for chronic diseases and offer a wide variety of other medical services such as antenatal and postnatal care, minor surgery, childhood vaccinations and well-person check-ups. Our building has disabled access.
Primary Care GP Extended Access Centres
There are now Extra GP appointments in the evenings and at weekends available to City and Hackney patients.
Urgent and routine appointments with a GP, either same day or in advance are available at any one of our five primary care GP practices, making it much easier to get the care you need at a location that is convenient for you. Read more
GLOBAL SHORTAGE OF
HEPATITIS A & HEPATITIS B VACCINES
Due to a global shortage of Hepatitis A vaccines there is a limited supply and it may not be available at your appointment. You can speak to the nurse at your travel appointment for more details or alternatively you can visit a private travel clinic. Also due to a shortage of Hepatitis B vaccines were are no longer offering private Hepatitis vaccines for travel. However if you require a Hepatitis B vaccine for another clinical reason this service will still be provided. Please visit the Nathnac website for more information.
The Sugar Smart Campaign aims to raise awareness on sugar and encourage individuals to make a pledge to reduce their consumption of sugar. The campaign has launched a survey to get people's views on sugar. Click here for more information or to complete the sugar survey, there are prizes to be won!.

Accessible Information Standard
The Accessible Information Standard (AIS) is a new NHS England information standard which must be implemented by all organisations that provide NHS or adult social care.
The AIS aims to ensure that people who have a disability, impairment or sensory loss receive information that they can access and understand, for example in large print, braille, professional communication support if they need it such as British Sign Language interpreter.
- We want to get better at communicating with our patients. We want to make sure you can read and understand the information we send you. If you find it hard to read our letters or if you need someone to support you at appointments, please let us know.
- We want to know if you need information in braille, large print or easy read.
- We want to know if you need a British Sign Language interpreter or advocate.
- We want to know if we can support you to lip-read or use a hearing aid or communication tool.
Please tell the receptionist when you arrive for your next appointment, or call us on 0203 538 6044.
This information will be recorded on your medical record in a standardised way and highlighted to ensure we have information on your communication needs.
This information could be shared with other NHS and adult social care providers if they need it.
