Urgent Appointments (5 minutes only)

Please tell the Receptionist if you feel you need an Urgent Appointment. These are quick 5 minute appointments which are reserved for problems that cannot wait until the following day. Urgent appointments may not be with your usual doctor.

We do not provide an Emergency Service. True emergencies should be seen in the nearest Accident & Emergency Department.

Early Morning Extended Hours Surgery - 7am to 8am

A small number of early morning appointments are now available between 7am and 8am on Mondays and Tuesdays. These appointments are specifically for patients who work and who are unable to attend during normal surgery hours. Appointments may be booked up to a month in advance. The surgery is not open for any other matters during this hour and only patients with pre-arranged appointments will be allowed through the door. The surgery will not fully open until 8.30am. Urgent medical advice before then is available through the Out of Hours services.

Telephone Advice
If you want some advice from the doctor or nurse over the telephone contact the Receptionist to arrange the best time to call.

^top


Text Reminders
We are now able to send a text reminder before your next appointment is due. Please make sure that we have your current mobile phone number.

^top


Failure To Attend
Every week an average of 16 patients fail to attend booked appointments with the doctor or nurse. This wastes the equivalent of one doctor's complete surgery (nearly 3 hours!). Please ensure that you always cancel your appointment if you cannot attend.

^top


Nurses Appointments

The nursing team are available for:

  • Health screening, well man/well woman checks and discussions
  • Stop smoking clinic
  • Blood pressure check and hypertension management
  • Minor injury treatment
  • Some minor surgical procedures
  • Asthma, diabetes and coronary heart disease checks
  • Care of wounds, dressings, stitch removal
  • Cervical smear tests
  • Contraception
  • Immunisations and travel advice

Our nurses cannot do blood tests. Patients must arrange these with one of the hospital phlebotomy clinics.

Ear syringing is no longer available at the surgery. Patients who require ear canal clearance will be referred to a hospital Ear Nose and Throat clinic.

^top


Clinics
As well as general surgery appointments we have a number of special clinics for specific medical problems. For more information on these visit our Services page.

^top


Home Visits
Home visits can be arranged for patients who are very ill and are unable to attend the surgery. Please phone to request a visit before 10am.

Out of Hours

NHS 111 is the new three-digit telephone service that has been introduced to improve access to NHS urgent care services. Patients can use this number when they need medical help or advice and it's not urgent enough to call 999. NHS 111 operates 24/7, 365 days per year and is free to use from a landline and a mobile.

You should use the NHS 111 service if you urgently need medical help or advice but it's not a life-threatening situation.

Call 111 if:

  • You need medical help fast but it's not a 999 emergency.
  • You think you need to go to A&E or need another NHS urgent care service.
  • You don't know who to call or you don't have a GP to call.
  • You need health information or reassurance about what to do next.

You can also attend a Walk-In Centre at Finchley Memorial Hospital or Edgware Community Hospital.

For emergencies go to A&E at Barnet General Hospital or dial 999.

Health informaqtion is available 24 hours a day from NHS Choices on-line.

Female Doctors
We have 2 female doctors at the surgery and 3 female nurses. If you would prefer to see a female doctor or nurse please mention this to the Receptionist when you book your appointment.

^top


Chaperones
If at any stage you feel that you would like to have a chaperone present during your consultation please mention this to the Receptionist or the Doctor. We have several members of staff who are trained to act as chaperones.

^top


Disabled Access

The surgery has a full range of facilities on the ground floor including a disabled access toilet, doctors room, and nurses treatment room. There is a small ramp to the front door suitable for wheelchairs. Access to the upstairs surgeries is by staircase only. If you are unable to manage stairs please inform the Receptionist that you require a consultation on the ground floor when you make your appointment.
