The Cricklewood walk-in service, based at the Cricklewood GP Health Centre, closed permanently on 30 June 2020. The decision to cease the service was made in February 2020 following a formal engagement exercise undertaken jointly by Barnet and Brent Clinical Commissioning Groups (CCGs)
The GP practice at Cricklewood Health Centre will continue to operate and register new patients and, in response to feedback to the formal engagement, NCL CCG has committed to providing additional appointments at the practice.
North Central London Clinical Commissioning Group (NCL CCG) is committed to ensuring that local residents in Barnet have access to a wide range of alternative urgent and primary care services to those offered by the walk in service.
