Dr Muna Naqvi

I am from Karachi in Pakistan- from where, having qualified as a doctor, I came to the UK for postgraduate studies in Paediatrics. Having obtained a full membership of the Royal College of Paediatrics and Child Health I became interested in primary care, through having worked in Community Child Health. I have been a GP since 2007 and have worked both in the UK and the Middle East and joined Elborough Street Surgery in 2019.

My main focus outside of the practice is my family. I also enjoy cooking and reading Urdu poetry.

Dr Karin Lenhart

After gaining my medical degree in Innsbruck, Austria in 2000, I moved to the UK and trained as a GP. I have worked at Elborough Street Surgery since 2004, with some breaks during which I worked in Australia and New Zealand.

My clinical interests include women’s health and dermatology. By combining my favourite pastime of hiking with work I have gained experience in expedition and altitude medicine.

I am fluent in German and English, with some knowledge of French.

Samuel Metcalf
Practice Manager

I have worked in NHS management for 13 years. I love developing new systems and services for patients. I really enjoy helping our Primary Care Network (PCN) on projects and developments and find it hugely rewarding. I work closely with Dr Laura Quinton, Clinical Director of Wandle PCN. We have now built a team of pharmacists, physiotherapists, care coordinators, social prescribers, physicians associates and paramedics.

When I’m not at work you will probably find me on a badminton court, playing league matches in London. I have competed in Ballroom and Latin dancing and have contributed to choreography on Strictly Come Dancing. I was also a jiving doctor in the opening ceremony of the 2012 London Olympic games.

Matthew Deans
Reception Manager

My career with the NHS began in 2015 working across Lambeth and Wandsworth. I joined the Elborough team in February 2020. Working for the NHS is extremely rewarding and delivering high patient care and making a difference in patients’ lives is one of my core values.

We have an amazing team here and as the Reception Manager, I enjoy building and developing colleagues by offering coaching, support and various training opportunities.

Outside of work, you’ll catch me cycling everywhere and anywhere and completed my first London to Brighton in 2022.

I am Medical Administrator/ Phlebotomist at Elborough Street. I have been working at the Surgery since 2011 and feel very privileged to be a part of the NHS and also working with an amazing team at Elborough Street Surgery.

What is Wandle PCN?

Five NHS GP practices – Southfields Group Practice, Elborough Street Surgery, Wandsworth Medical Centre, The Earlsfield Practice and Triangle Surgery – located in the borough of Wandsworth have joined forces to make sure each one of their patients can benefit from a broader range of accessible, high quality healthcare, both now and in the future. Our united name for this is the Wandle Primary Care Network (PCN).

Although our practices still operate independently, providing GP services and keeping their own patient lists, individual identities, premises and teams, we are now providing certain services together. These include Hypertension clinics, Menopause clinics, extra GP (including evenings and Saturdays) and Nurse clinics, as well as appointments with an array of specialist clinicians, such as Clinical Pharmacists, Physiotherapists, Physician Associates,  Paramedics, an Assistant Psychologist, a Social Prescriber and a Health and Wellbeing Coach.

It is a new name, but it is about providing you with the right services, by the right people, at the right time.

Paramedics: Ryan Bates, Conchita Rilo
