Hi, I’m the Social Prescriber for Wandle PCN. I’m here to help with several areas including mental health, healthy living, housing, finance, debt management, weight management and a number of other areas. I typically support patients by linking them with local support groups and agencies whilst being on hand to support with applications for government/ council support. If there is an issue that may not be suitable for a GP (non-medical/social) I am happy to discuss and work through these. I currently work at Elborough Street on Wednesday’s, you can make an appointment with me by contacting the Care Navigators.

Mark Westron

I’m Mark and I am the Wandle PCN Paramedic.

I have been a Paramedic for over 30 years and in that time have been with the East of England Ambulance service, working in the Private Ambulance Sector, and prior to joining the PCN was with The Rapid Assessment Team based at Northwick Park Hospital. These roles have given me a broad spectrum of skills in patient assessment and treatment which I can bring to this new and evolving role in primary care

One of my greatest times in the Ambulance Service was being selected to work the Olympics and Para Olympics in 2012 a fantastic time meeting some amazing people.

In my down time I enjoy walking my dogs, traveling and doing DIY (mainly for my children and Grandchildren)


In partnership with Surrey Physio, Wandle PCN offers First Contact Physiotherapy with a practitioner who can assess, diagnose, treat and manage musculoskeletal (MSK) problems and discharge a patient without a medical referral. Those working in these roles within a network can be accessed through direct referral by staff in GP Practices, removing the need for an initial GP appointment and meaning patients can get seen by a specialist sooner.

Spyridon (Spyros) Nikologiannis is based at Southfield’s Group Practice. Please call our reception team to book.
