Extended Hours

We understand that many of our patients have busy working lives and may not find it easy to get an appointment with us during the working day. To try to address this and in line with the NHS Long Term Plan, we are offering appointments from 07:30 throughout the week with GPs and nursing team as well as appointments available with the out of hours service.

Although these appointments are open to all, we ask that if you do not work and can be seen during the day that you do not request an appointment at these times. The appointments are all pre-bookable in advance.

When We Are Closed

UPCOMING CLOSURES

The time when the Surgery is closed is called "Out-of-Hours" and this is being standardised to 18:30 to 08:00 every night except weekends and bank holidays.

Occasionally the surgery is closed for staff training. During these hours you can call NHS 111 by calling 111

  • NHS 111 is a new non-emergency telephone service designed to help people access the correct urgent local health services both in and out of surgery hours. Local residents will be able to call 111 when they need medical help and advice, but it isn’t a 999 emergency.
  • NHS 111 will determine whether you can wait to see a health care professional at your practice or need use another urgent service in the area. This may include advice to go to your local pharmacist / walk in centre / Out of hours GP appointment or visit.
  • NHS 111 call handlers use the Directory of Service (DoS) to find the most appropriate available service for you.

In an emergency you can dial 999 to order an ambulance. If you have been hurt in a accident you can go direct to the Accident and Emergency Department at Barnet General Hospital which has 24hour opening, however minor injuries can be dealt with at Finchley Memorial Hospital (See below)

 

Walk-in Centres

NHS Walk-in Centres offer fast and convenient access to local NHS services, information and treatment without needing an appointment. They do not replace local GP or hospital services but complement them.

 

Finchley Memorial Hospital

Granville Road, Finchley, N12 – 08:00 – 22:00
020 8349 7470

There is routinely a doctor in the Walk-in Centre but occasionally the centre is nurse led. Senior nurse practitioners are available to see patients with minor illnesses and injuries. X-ray facility closes at 17:00.

 

Edgware Community Hospital

Burnt Oak Broadway, Edgware, HA8 0AD – 07:00 – 23:00

There is routinely a doctor in the Walk-in Centre from 10:00 to 20:00 daily. The unit is nurse led between 07:00 – 10:00 and 20:00 – 23:00. Senior nurse practitioners are available to see patients with minor illnesses and injuries.

Out-of-hours services are generally busy so please think carefully before asking to see a doctor and only do so if you genuinely cannot wait until the surgery re-opens.

Local Walk-in Centres and A&E

In a genuine emergency you should call 999. Chest pains and / or shortness of breath constitute an emergency.
