NHS 111 online is for people aged 5 and over. Call 111 if you need help for a child under 5.

Call 999 in a medical or mental health emergency. This is when someone is seriously ill or injured and their life is at risk.

If you need help with your appointment

Please tell us:

  • if there’s a specific doctor, nurse or other health professional you would prefer to respond

Home visits

If you are housebound and need an appointment, we will do a home visit. We will phone you first to understand what you need.

To request a home visit, it’s helpful if you phone the practice before 11am.

A doctor or nurse may phone you back as it may be that your problem can be dealt with by telephone advice or the doctor may want more information regarding your illness before the visit.

House visits are only available for patients who are housebound because of illness or disability.

Please remember that several patients can be seen in the practice in the time that it takes to make one home visit. There are also better facilities for examining and treating patients at the surgery.

Extra GP appointments are available in the evenings and on the weekends in Barnet. These extended hours (18:30 to 20:00 on weekdays) (08:00 – 20:00 at weekends) are provided from several GP practices (Hubs) in the borough.

You can call the service directly on 020 3948 6809 during the hub operating hours to book an appointment or we at the practice can book this for you.  

Non-urgent advice: GP Extended Hours

As part of the Government’s plans to improve healthcare we are now open three mornings per week *from 7am (see above for start times and days), mainly to see patients who are unable to attend during the day for their appointment.

Please note no reception staff are on duty at these times, and you will therefore not be able to contact the Practice by phone.

If you are late for an early morning appointment you will not be seen. If you need to cancel you appointment within 24 hours please either phone, text facility, or use the website form.

When you arrive for your appointment please wait in the waiting room and one of the doctor’s will call you.

This service will be for routine medical conditions and is not an emergency service. The service is limited where doctors will be restricted in their physical examination of patients, and scope to arrange investigation.

Patients will therefore not be able to have blood tests, smear tests or an intimate examination requiring assistance from a chaperone, any chronic disease management review, or dressings or ear syringing, but will have to return for a day-time appointment if these services are required.

Young children and the elderly who require to be brought to the surgery by working family members will also be welcome to these appointments.

If you become unwell after 6:00pm please call NHS 24 as usual – 111

Chaperones

A chaperone is a person who serves as a witness for both a patient and a clinician as a safeguard for both parties during a medical examination or procedure.

If you feel you would like a chaperone present at your consultation please either inform Reception or speak to the doctor / nurse who will be more than happy to arrange this for you.

Interpreter

If you require an interpreter to attend with you when you see your Doctor please notify the receptionist and she will arrange this for you.
