From 1st April Barton House will be moving to a usual doctor system. Already we try as much as possible to make sure your appointment is booked with the doctor who knows you best, or with whom you have already spoken. Our doctors are now working in “teams”. This means that if your usual doctor is not available, and your query is urgent, and cannot wait for them to come back, you will be offered an appointment with another doctor in their team. This will mean that you speak to a few familiar faces at the practice and with doctors who know you. We hope that this will mean improved continuity and follow up in your care.
IF YOU HAVE OR ANY FAMILY MEMBER HAVE ANY SYMPTOMS, PLEASE DO NOT COME TO THE PRACTICE
If your child is unwell with a new rash please call the surgery to speak to the duty doctor for advice before coming in.
Extended Access Neighbourhood Service - Evening & Weekend appointments are available here or at a nearby NHS service click here or speak a Receptionist for more information.

Accessible Information Standard
The Accessible Information Standard aims to ensure that patients (or their carers) who have a disability or sensory loss receive information they can access and understand. For example in large print, braille or via email.
As part of the Accessible Information Standard we must:
- Identify patients who may have an additional communication need.
- Record the patient's need in our clinical GP system.
- Flag the patient's record to assure additional communication needs are obvious to practice staff;
- Share this information with other care givers such as social care;
- Act to ensure our staff can effectively communicate with patients who may have additional communication needs.
Please inform a member of staff in reception if you have any communication support needs- you can call us on 0207 249 5511 or tell a receptionist in person. You need to help us make sure we get things right for you.

Named Accountable GP for all Patients
From 1st April 2015, all practices are required to inform their patients including children of their named accountable GP, under the new GP contract for 2015/2016. The named GP will have overall responsibility for the care and support that the surgery provides to you.
If you would like to know who your named GP is please contact reception.
This does not prevent you from seeing any GP in the practice as you currently do.
Please allow 48 hours for processing of your repeat prescription once you have dropped it off at the surgery. We do not take requests for repeat prescriptions over the telephone.
Cancelling your Appointment
If you are unable to attend an appointment with one of the doctors or nurses, please telephone to cancel your appointment.
Out of Hours
