Appointments

Appointments are released at 8.30am every day.

The fastest way to book an appointment is through online access. You can also make an appointment by calling the surgery. Waiting outside the surgery might make your symptoms worse. We strongly encourage you to book online or call for an appointment.

For non-urgent conditions, long-term conditions and medication reviews we recommend booking pre-bookable appointments which are available two to three weeks in advance.

Triage Telephone Calls

We also offer telephone assessments, where our duty doctor will call you to discuss your medical problem. They may ask you to come to the practice if you need to be examined. We also offer appointments that you can book up to three weeks in advance.

Appointment Availability

 

If no appointments are available, our receptionists may offer you an appointment at another practice. If this is not possible, they will recommend attending the walk-in centre.

Appointment Length and Translation

An appointment with a doctor is 10 minutes long. We are a training practice. An appointment with a GP registrar may be longer. An appointment with a nurse is 15 minutes long. 

A telephone interpreting service is available. Please let the receptionist know which language you need assistance with when you book your appointment.

If you have more than one issue to discuss or require interpreting services, please book a double appointment.

Appointments at another practice

We are part of Barnet Federated GPs, which allows our patients access to evening and weekend appointments across the borough. Receptionists may offer you one of these appointments. You can also book these appointments by calling:

Please note, if you need help with a chronic condition or need support with your mental health, it is best for you to see your regular doctor.

 

Cancelling an appointment

If we have your up to date mobile phone number, we will send you a text reminder the working day before your appointment. You can reply to this text to cancel your appointment. You can also cancel your appointment using your Patient Access account.

 

Alternatively, call the practice to cancel your appointment as soon as possible to allow another patient access to medical support. 40 – 60 patients do not attend appointments without letting us know each week.
