St Andrews Medical Practice

Booking an Appointment


All appointments are by arrangement only. We do not offer a walk in clinic. Appointment slots are for one patient only and double appointments can only be booked when the Doctor has specified that it is necessary.

 

Urgent Appointments

 

Appointments are available on the day only for urgent medical problems. All same day urgent appointments will be in the morning.  Please call as near to 8.30am as possible as there are limited urgent appointments available.

  

Urgent appointments are for medical problems only and not for prescriptions, sick certificates etc.

 

 

WE HAVE SHORTENED THE LENGTH OF OUR URGENT APPOINTMENTS FROM 15 MINUTES TO 10 MINUTES.  WE WOULD RESPECTFULLY ASK THAT PATIENTS ATTENDING FOR URGENT APPOINTMENTS DISCUSS ONLY THE ONE PROBLEM FOR WHICH THEY HAVE BOOKED THAT APPOINTMENT FOR.  IF YOU ALSO HAVE NON-URGENT MEDICAL ISSUES THEN WE ASK THAT YOU BOOK A ROUTINE APPOINTMENT TO DISCUSS THESE SEPARATELY. 

 

YOU WILL BE GIVEN AN APPOINTMENT WITH AN AVAILABLE DOCTOR OR NURSE - NOT NECESSARILY SEE THE DOCTOR OF YOUR CHOICE.

Access to General Practice Services - evening and weekend appointments.

Barnet residents can get Monday and Friday evening appointments and weekend appointments via our special "access hubs" throughout the borough.  Please click here for more information.

 

Missed Appointments

 

Every day appointments are wasted when patients do not attend and this costs valuable time and money. If you are unable to keep an appointment we do ask that you make every effort to inform the Surgery in good time so that your appointment may be offered to another patient.  You may receive a warning letter if you constantly do not attend your appointment.

 

Home Visits


These need to be reserved for housebound and elderly patients. Please telephone as early in the morning as possible to make arrangements with the receptionist.

 

 

Blood Tests

We have a Phlebotomist at the Surgery every Tuesday morning. Appointments are pre-bookable only.  For Barnet and Edgware an online booking service is available for blood tests.  Go to www.royalfree.nhs.uk/bloodtests.

 

 

Interpreting Services

The reception team can book telephone interpreting for a range of languages.  An interpreter can also be pre-booked for a specific consultation if required.  This can take up to two weeks to arrange. Please let reception know when booking your appointment if you require this service.

 

 

Minor Ailments 

 

Every year, millions of us visit our GP with minor health problems that can be easily resolved without a doctor's appointment.

You don't always need an appointment with your GP for advice on coughs, colds and other minor health problems – you can see the practice nurse or local pharmacist instead. Local pharmacies can also help and advise you with common ailments. A minor ailment passport can be obtained from Reception which will entitle you to direct treatment from a participating pharmacy.

 

Self-care

Keeping a well stocked medicine cabinet at home can help you treat many minor ailments. Your pharmacist can advise on what you might find useful to keep in your medicine cabinet. Always follow the instructions on the medicine label and consult your doctor if the illness continues or becomes more severe.

Sick certificates

 

You don't need a sicknote if you are off work for less than seven days. You can self-certify – contact your personnel office at work for details. Please note that urgent appointments will NOT be given for sick certificates. Please see link below for further information on self certification.
