Temporary suspension of walk-in services at Edgware Community Hospital

In response to the ongoing pandemic and the additional challenges created by the Omicron variant, walk-in services at Edgware Community Hospital will temporarily close from Friday 24 December 2021.

During this time, alternative services for patients with urgent but not life-threatening injuries are available. People with urgent but not life-threatening conditions are advised to visit the NHS 111 service online or call NHS 111. Finchley Memorial Hospital Walk-in Centre remains open between 8am and 7pm. More information about the services available at Finchley Memorial Hospital Walk-in Centre is available on this webpage.

The closure of Edgware walk-in services will be a temporary measure and the arrangements will be reviewed again in January 2022. We will look to re-open these services as soon as possible.

Edgware Community Hospital walk-in centre re-opens 1 October 2021

Our NHS walk-in centre at Edgware Community Hospital re-opens on Friday 1 October 2021 - increasing access for local residents to urgent healthcare appointments and helping to relieve pressure on local A&Es. 

The NHS in North Central London made the difficult decision to temporarily close the walk-in service during the first wave of the COVID-19 pandemic, including Edgware Community Hospital walk-in centre. 

Services available from 1 October 2021

While the NHS remains extremely busy, we are pleased to be in the position to re-open the centre as a nurse-led walk-in clinic from 08:00 to 18:00, seven days a week, in the first instance. 

Residents with an urgent healthcare need can access care at the centre on a walk-in basis but may need to wait to be seen while the most urgent cases are prioritised. 

COVID-19 safety measures for service-users 

Due to ongoing COVID-19 safety measures, all patients and visitors will be screened before entering the walk-in centre.

We have reduced the capacity of our waiting room to ensure social distancing, and you may need to need to wait elsewhere after your appointment is confirmed, then return to be seen. Unless you are vulnerable, you will need to visit walk-in centre and attend your appointment alone.

All visitors must wear a face covering and follow social distancing rules at all times while visiting the walk-in centre. If you are experiencing COVID-19 symptoms, you must not attend your appointment (visit the NHS.UK website for information on COVID-19 symptoms).
