Welcome to our Practice

Dowsett Road Surgery

We are a group of GPs, Nurses and support staff working together as one team over four sites in Haringey.

The practice is also very keen to hear from our patients about our services and you can help by completing the Friends & Family Test (FFT).

Did you know that 97.6% of patients would recommend us to their friends and family (* January 2024)

We have the highest number of GPs per 1000 patients in the PCN, well above the national average*

We have the highest percentage of appointments offered with a GP in the PCN, well above national average at 71.1%*

We have a very high DNA (patient did not attend) rate at 8%. These are appointments that could be given to someone who really needs it! Please respect the team and value your appointment, don’t book if you don’t need it and please cancel if you no longer can attend so we can offer it to someone who does!
