Noticeboard

  • Do you want to get your COVID vaccine? Are you 50 or over and live in Hackney or the City of London? for more information click here

  • 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 are waiting for a Covid Test Result, please do no come into the Practice.

  • Please note we are encouraging all patients attending appointments or visiting  BHGP to  wear a face covering.

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.

Flu Clinics -

The 'flu' season is upon us yet again! Flu is a very contagious infection, which can cause serious illness among people aged over 65 years, or those of any age with particular medical conditions. Levels of 'flu' infection rise during the winter months. The best way to protect yourself against 'flu' is by having the 'flu' jab every year.

The following groups of patients will receive a letter or a text message from the practice inviting them to come in to have their flu jab:

  • Children age two and three (date of birth 1 September 2016 to 31 August 2018)
  • Patients aged 65 & over
  • Patients aged six months to 64 years of age with a serious medical condition such as (Severe asthma, Diabetes, COPD, Cancer, Heart Disease etc)
  • Pregnant women
  • People living in long stay residential homes
  • People in receipt of a carers allowance or main carer of an older or disabled person.
  • Household contact of immunocompromised individuals
  • Morbidly obese (those with BMI over 40)
  • Front line healthcare workers

This year all our Flu Clinics are by appointments only, if you have either received a text message from us inviting you or received a letter from us, please telephone the surgery and book your appointment into our dedicated flu clinics.
