Welcome to The North London Health Centre Online
Five doctors, two training doctors and a practice nurse are based at the surgery and care for the practice population of more than 7500 patients.
Other health professionals such as District nurses, Community Matrons and McMillan nurses are attached to the surgery and work closely with the doctors to provide patients with a comprehensive, high quality service.
We aim to provide a high standard of medical care in a friendly and professional manner. You can help us achieve our aim by reading this guide and following the suggestions made to ensure that appropriate services can be provided when you most need them.

The Choose Well campaign, a local campaign by Enfield, Barnet and Haringey CCGs, aims to highlight the range of local NHS services that can be accessed and serves as a reminder that A&E is for serious and life-threatening injuries or illnesses only.
As part of the campaign materials there is a patient leaflet and also a Choose Well app which is free to download on Apple and Android devices through Apple Store and Google Play. The app is available not only in English but also Turkish, Polish and Somali. The app helps people decide what service they need and where to go to access it. The names, locations and opening hours of every pharmacy, GP surgery, walk-in and urgent care centre and hospital A&E in Enfield, Barnet and Haringey are included on the app along with a locator map showing where the nearest service is.
You can download the free app from the following:
