Welcome to The Old Courthouse Surgery
At The Old Courthouse Surgery in Barnet the Doctors and Nurses take pride in offering the highest standard of patient-centred healthcare. We run many clinics for chronic disease care and offer a wide variety of other medical services such as antenatal and postnatal care, minor surgery, childhood vaccinations and well-person check-ups.

We are committed to teaching and feel we have a responsibility towards the next generation of doctors. We are a training practice and have foundation doctors and GP Registrars working here. GP Registrars are fully qualified doctors who have usually completed a minimum of three years of hospital work after qualifying. As part of their training for General Practice they are required to spend a year working at a practice. Our GP Registrars are attached to the Barnet Vocational Training Scheme. Foundation doctors currently spend 4 months with us as part of their training.
We also have medical students from UCLMedical School who will spend several weeks at the practice during their final year at medical school.
As an aid to teaching and also to improve our own skills we sometimes video consultations. These videos are only used for teaching and only seen by doctors. Physical examinations are not video taped. If a video session is taking place you will be given a form at reception, which explains what is happening. If you agree to be videoed please sign the consent form - you have the right to change your mind at the end of the consultation and the tape will be erased. If you do not agree to be videoed the video recorder will be turned off before you enter the room. It will help us greatly if you do agree to be videoed but we understand if you do not wish to consent to this.
We would be grateful if you would take a few moments to complete our patient questionnaire, via the link
