Attended the Polyclinic for the first time yesterday and I was very impressed.Considering everyone working there is dealing with a high volume of patients and severe government cuts, I think they are doing a fantastic job.It was easy to park and the premises were very clean. All of the staff were friendly and professional.I was there 45 minutes and left with a diagnosis and a prescription. Now that is what I call an impressive free service.Thank you.

Visited Kings Park today and saw a new doctor. No apologies for running 30mins late. The doctor openly used her mobile phone the whole time of the consultation only to give a quick glance at the three readings on the BP machine - in addition to taking a quick call. I was so stunned and I will ensure that I do not see that doctor ever again. I have had doctors who quickly glance at their phone and this is quite acceptable but holding the phone and going through Instagram and friends’ lists while attending to the patient is not.

Gooshays Health Centre Blood Test had closed early due to sheer numbers so tried here.Phoned and had a very pleasaent lady answer and advise it looked reasonably quiet so a good chance I would be seen.I was in and seen within 10 mins - bloods taken by lovely lady. Last time I went to another surgery I fainted. Really pleased with how kind, efficient and pleaseant the nurse was who took my bloods.Excellent would definately come back.ThanksSue

the receptionist went the extra mile to get an urgent prescription from the Doctor following my wife's hip replacement surgery. Could have been more efficient or helpful.

Dear patient, Thank you vey much for taking the time to post your comments onto NHS Choices. We are lucky to have an excellent team here at Kings Park Surgery and am I very pleased that my team were able to help you recently. Although we normally request 48 hours for a prescription in a emergency like your own we always try to pull out all the stops. I hope your wife is now feeling better and is on the road to recovery.

I had to return for another blood test today, there was a little confusion on the telephone call I received from a GP a few weeks in regards to the results. I was kindly welcomed by the Phlebotomist and I told her briefly why I was there. She was a little concerned over what I told her, so kindly checked what was actually required based on previous tests and results (Patient File). She came back and advised that all the previous blood tests would be retaken, this made me feel at ease, as I was very concerned by being told all was good by the GP but previous to that phone call I was advised that one of the tests didn't go through! Very mixed. The Phlebotomist (K) really reassured me, so thank you, and thank you for taking the time to investigate my concern. Also while I'm here, my doctor and the reception staff are equally fantastic!!!!

Kings Park Surgery is attached to the Harold Wood Polyclinic but runs separate registered patent appointments. I have always found the staff and friendly and competent despite having a large workload and being busy. There is a large car-park so this is also a bonus compared with some other surgeries.Appointments for registered patients are usually running at least 30mins late so be prepared to wait a little. Also note that if you don't visit the GP very often you will rarely see the same one twice, in my experience, many seem to come and go every few months, so for on-going issues you often have to start from square-one explaining again. You can usually get an appointment pretty quickly despite the large number of patients (usually same day or later that week) and the staff are extremely helpful in sorting things out for you. The added bonus is that for blood tests etc they can be done on the same site at the polyclinic so you don't need to go elsewhere and wait for them.

I have seen lots of negative reviews of this surgery and I cannot even begin too understand why. The rating does absolutely no justice for this GP surgery. I have had terrible experiences with GP's in havering and London and I was not able to get help for my condition until I joined Kings Park surgery. I registered on the Saturday and was seen on the Monday or Tuesday, I know it was Incredibly quick. I was then seen by a doctor two weeks later. I struggle as There is lots of stigma associated with my condition and I wasn't going to tell him what was wrong with me but he made me feel at ease and I felt I was able to tell him. Instead of being met with judgement the doctor immediately set about trying to help me. We worked out a comprehensive and robust plan and I managed to stick by it, he told me I could call for support which made me feel a lot better. I was so happy that I had been honest and that he was so understanding. The receptionists and practice Manager are always so polite and do their best to help. I see lots of negative reviews and I just can't understand it. The doctor and the team at kings park have made my quality of life so much better and I always have support if I need it and I am so grateful for that.I don't think I'd be in such a good place and healthy if I had not have joined such a kind and professional GP practice and especially not without the support of the doctor. Thank you from the bottom of my heart for the continuing support I am getting and please pass my thanks on to the doctor and the team.

Hi,My 8 year old has had many blood tests in the last year and her experiences of these at the Polyclinic are brilliant - has never been upset when she's had them done here whereas on our recent stay at Broomfield hospital, she was in tears when they took her blood. I would 100% recommend the Polyclinic above anywhere else for blood tests. Staff are so helpful.
