Barndoc was established in August 1996 operating initially from Finchley Memorial Hospital with 7 practices and 24 principal GPs. In 2007 Barndoc GP members voted to establish a new for profit company, Barndoc Healthcare Ltd., to work alongside the existing company. All profit made by Barndoc is reinvested in improving patient services and care.
Barndoc now has 70 GPs and 60 nurses that provide out of hours care to over 1million residents of Barnet, Enfield, Haringey and parts of Brent, registered at general practices within these Boroughs.
Patients access our service via 111, a service provided by neighbouring healthcare providers. If they decide that your clinical needs cannot wait until your GP practice is next open, they pass your case to Barndoc. We will then carry out a further assessment either by a registered nurse or GP which may result in self care advice, referral to another service such as A & E, or the offer of an appointment to be seen by a doctor or nurse at one of our bases. Barndoc has also been commissioned by Barnet CCG to run Cricklewood GP Health Centre and a Referral Management Service on their behalf..
Barndoc has three sites that patients from Barnet, Enfield and Haringey can attend to be seen by the GP or Nurse on duty: Finchley Memorial Hospital, Chase Farm Hospital, and The Laurels. Brent patients may be seen at Central Middlesex Hospital by Care UK.
In the a National Audit report on Out of Hours services, Barndoc was rated 17th out of a possible 67 other comparable out of hours services. 92% of patients that use our services tell us they are very satisfied or satisfied with our service and we regularly have positive feedback from patients.
Robust Clinical Governance arrangements are in place to ensure that high quality services are maintained and improved as necessary. Barndoc has a Patient Participation Group which reviews the development of our services to patients.
There are many challenges facing the NHS and Barndoc will continue to work with commissioners to ensure the best possible standards of patient care without compromising on quality.
