What Happens Next?
Sameday Appointment Trial
As many are aware we release sameday morning appointments at 8am and afternoon appointments at 10:30am. As part of a trial this will soon change, allowing patients to book a morning or afternoon appointment from 8am.
Practice Health Champions
We are delighted to welcome our Practice Health Champions to St. George's. They are here to help both St. George's and our patients, and do so on a voluntary basis. Please welcome them and feel free to have a chat if you see them. To find out more about them, including when they're here please read their dedicated page here.
Your Named GP
All patients (including children) have been allocated a named, accountable GP. However you're welcome to book appointments with whichever doctor/nurse you wish.
Pan Barnet Data Sharing Agreement
Barnet CCG is investing in a pilot scheme that will allow patients to be seen on Friday evening, Saturday, Sunday and Monday evening. This means there will be more opportunity for you to see a local GP out of hours at another local GP practice.
In order to participate in this, we are part of a data sharing agreement with other local practices in Barnet.
If you have an appointment booked as part of this pilot your consent will be required for the GP to view your practice notes. This will be requested during your consultation.
Should you not wish for your notes to be part of this data sharing agreement please inform our Practice Manager (Mr Riz Husain) in writing.
Replacement Blood Forms
Please note that as of the 1st September 2015 we will be unable to provide free replacements for blood forms that have been lost, forgotten or misplaced.
If you require a copy of a blood form you were previously given a charge of 50p will apply per copy.
Out of Hours
Please call 111 or visit the NHS Choices website.
There may be appointments available through the Barnet Enhanced Service.
