Welcome to Barton House Group
Through the pandemic we have strived to make the surgery as safe as possible for all our patients and staff. We will continue to do so going forward.
For the time being there will be no changes here at the practice. Patients coming to the surgery will still need to wear a mask, use the hand sanitiser and socially distance. Our staff will continue to wear appropriate PPE.
We have made this decision as often patients coming to the surgery are sick, vulnerable and maybe unvaccinated due to medical reasons, so we feel that these precautions will help to protect everyone. We also need to minimise the number of our staff catching Covid so we can keep a functioning service, so for this reason alone these measures are vital.
Our consultations will continue, these might be offered as face to face, by phone or by video. It is worth noting that we are consulting with higher numbers of patients than we ever did before the pandemic, whilst also playing a big part in the vaccination programme too. Our doors have never been shut.
We hope you will understand why we need to continue with these measures and keep the surgery as safe for everyone as we can. We have all come so far in trying to minimise the impact of Covid, let’s continue to stay safe together.
If you need to speak to a GP, please book an appointment by calling reception on 0207 249 5511 or by using our online booking service. Our appointment line opens at 8am in the morning, please call at this time for an appointment that day. If your query is urgent we have a duty doctor available throughout our opening hours.
You may have noticed some differences in how we worked during the pandemic. We are working, where possible, to reduce the need to come into the practice, and thus reduce the spread of the coronavirus. As always your initial appointment will be by telephone. If a face to face appointment is needed, this will be offered to you.
Please do not attend the practice without first speaking to a doctor
If you are invited in for a face to face appointment, we will ask you some questions to check it is safe for you to come to the practice. Please let the doctor know, and do not attend the practice, if you are experiencing any symptoms of Covid-19 (fever, cough or loss of sense of smell), if you have been advised that you have been in contact with someone with Covid-19, or if you are waiting for the result of a swab test for Covid-19.
When you attend for your appointment, please wear a face mask, and if possible, attend alone. Hand gel will be available, please do use this on your arrival.
Our waiting room is set up to enable social distancing. We ask that you come close to the time of your appointment to avoid the waiting room becoming busy.
We are still providing most of our usual services, including vaccinations and smear tests. Please do contact reception to make an appointment for these. We are currently only arranging blood tests that are urgent, please do discuss with your doctor if you think you need a blood test.
We have taken steps to keep our staff safe, including risk assessing our work and use of PPE. We are looking after our mental wellbeing through regular team meetings and staff support sessions.
All adults aged 18 or over can now get vaccinated against COVID-19. You do not need to wait to be contacted by the NHS. If you were contacted but have not booked your appointments, you're still eligible and can book your appointments anytime. If you initally decline but have now change your mind and would like to be vaccinated, please inform member of our team and we book you your appointment.
