The NHS in North Central London have agreed to temporarily close NHS walk-in centre services at Edgware Community Hospital, effective from 6pm on 24 December 2021.
This decision has been taken in response to the ongoing pandemic and the additional challenges created by the Omicron variant.
Temporarily closing these services will allow us to keep other critical services running for local residents, including essential care for housebound patients.
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 365 days per year. It opens at 8am and the last patient is permitted to book in at 9pm.
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.
