During December, COVID infections have risen sharply in London and this has led to increased demand for hospital care.

If you have www.111.nhs.uk or call 111. In a medical emergency, you should dial 999 as usual. Thank you for supporting the NHS.
As a community, we mourn the loss of our dear doctor, Sachin Khurjekar.
Sachin spent the majority of his career serving as a GP in Brent and Harrow East, between Honeypot Medical Centre and more recently, Mollison Way Surgery.
Gone too soon and so suddenly, it has taken us all some time to find the words to express the sense of grief we are experiencing for our friend, colleague and in some cases mentor.
Many people remember Sachin as a welcome source of light in this world, regularly armed with a smile, his pipe and a joke to lift the spirits. His colleagues remember his penchant for vintage pens and watches, a unique dress sense and his enjoyment of a perfectly brewed tea from a china cup at work.
He was a gentleman with old fashioned courtesy and kindness central to his values. They describe him as “the heart of the GP surgery,” treating patients not with pills but kindness and empathy and this has influenced many colleagues past and present to follow in his footsteps.
He spoke so tenderly about his family and his children who were his biggest loves. The community remembers how he took youngsters under his wing to teach them the joys of rugby and, in doing so, taught them many life skills along the way. Even those who knew him for a short time would find themselves “forever changed” by knowing him, such was the impact of his sparkling personality and big heart.
Sachin’s untimely death sparked his family to raise money for Mind a charity which he supported throughout his life. It is testament to a life well lived that they exceeded their original target and have raised over £7,000, and continue to raise money for a cause Sachin was passionate about in life.
We see in us, his legacy continues after his death. Sachin, we will miss you and continue to celebrate your life and your presence in ours.

What’s the risk of coronavirus in the UK?
The UK Chief Medical Officers have raised the risk to the public from low to moderate.
Health professionals are working to contact anyone who has been in close contact with people who have coronavirus.
What’s the risk of coronavirus for travellers?
There are some countries and areas where there’s a higher chance of coming into contact with someone with coronavirus.
See the NHS.uk coronavirus advice for travellers.
Symptoms of coronavirus
The symptoms of coronavirus are:
- a cough
- a high temperature
- shortness of breath
But these symptoms do not necessarily mean you have the illness.
The symptoms are similar to other illnesses that are much more common, such as cold and flu.
Check if you need medical help
NHS 111 has an online coronavirus service that can tell you if you need medical help and advise you what to do.
Use this service if:
- you think you might have coronavirus
- in the last 14 days you’ve been to a country or area with a high risk of coronavirus – see the NHS.uk coronavirus advice for travellers
- you’ve been in close contact with someone with coronavirus
Do not go to a GP surgery, pharmacy or hospital. Call 111 if you need to speak to someone.
How to self-isolate if you’re asked to
If there’s a chance you could have coronavirus, you may be asked to stay away from other people (self-isolate).
This means you should:
- stay at home
- not go to work, school or public places
- not use public transport or taxis
- ask friends, family members or delivery services to do errands for you
- try to avoid visitors to your home – it’s OK for friends, family or delivery drivers to drop off food
You may need to do this for up to 14 days to help reduce the possible spread of infection.

How coronavirus is spread
Because it’s a new illness, we do not know exactly how coronavirus spreads from person to person.
Similar viruses are spread in cough droplets.
It’s very unlikely it can be spread through things like packages or food.
Do I need to avoid public places?
Most people can continue to go to work, school and other public places.
You only need to stay away from public places (self-isolate) if advised to by the 111 online coronavirus service or a medical professional.
How to avoid catching or spreading coronavirus
- wash your hands with soap and water often – do this for at least 20 seconds
- always wash your hands when you get home or into work
- use hand sanitiser gel if soap and water are not available
- cover your mouth and nose with a tissue or your sleeve (not your hands) when you cough or sneeze
- put used tissues in the bin straight away and wash your hands afterwards
- try to avoid close contact with people who are unwell
- do not touch your eyes, nose or mouth if your hands are not clean
Treatment for coronavirus
There is currently no specific treatment for coronavirus.
Antibiotics do not help, as they do not work against viruses.
Treatment aims to relieve the symptoms while your body fights the illness.
You’ll need to stay in isolation away from other people until you’ve recovered.

New telephone system for Mollison Way Surgery – improving your service from Wednesday 30th October 2019
Your feedback is very important to us, and is helping to improve and shape the care that we deliver at Mollison Way Surgery.
We know from the experiences that you have shared with us that you are unsatisfied with the current telephone system, and that you can often be on hold for quite some time, as well as sometimes experience disconnection whilst in conversation with one of our team members.
We have been working hard with the current telephone system provider, and earlier this year we took the firm decision to change telephony provider, as we do not consider the current system to be fit-for-purpose having explored all possible options for its improvement.
On Wednesday 30th October 2019 at 12pm, a new telephone system will be implemented at the practice. There will be no change to the surgery telephone number.
We have invested in the new telephone system to provide you with an improved service. Whilst we do not anticipate any downtime during the system migration, we would like to thank you in advance for your patience with any inconvenience you may experience in the change over.
If you have any queries or concerns and would like to write to us, please email us on, email@example.com thank you.
Please note our opening schedule until Wednesday 2 January 2019 below, after which the usual schedule will resume for each practice from Thurs 3 January 2019.
