The partners and staff would like to welcome you to our practice. We have been offering family doctor services to the local community since 1988, and have two sites; the main practice in Austin Road, and a branch practice in Thessaly Road.
Our aim is provide our patients with excellent, patient-centered health care and encourage patients to be fully involved with the doctors and nurses in planning and maintaining their own health and well-being. We value the contribution patients make in improving services we offer at the practice, and welcome feedback.
Battersea Fields Practice (BFP) serves a highly deprived area of north Battersea. The Austin Road practice was established in 1988 and due to strong encouragement by the then Family Practitioner Committee (FPC), a branch surgery was opened on the Patmore Estate in 1991 due to concern about the pocket of extreme deprivation and significant health needs particularly on the Patmore estate.
We are additionally a training and research practice and pride ourselves on helping student doctors and nurses gain experience working in the health environment.
Putting patients and the public first
We welcome all patients, and celebrate the diversity of our community. We strive to ensure that all patients are equally valued and respected and oppose any form of discrimination. We are proud to have been awarded the LGBT Foundation Pride in Practice Gold Award
We are also part of the Doctors of the World Safe Surgery Initiative and are committed to taking steps to tackle the barriers faced by migrants in accessing health care.
