Pinn Medical Centre temporarily closes to walk in patients

The Pinn Medical Centre has temporarily closed to walk in patients due to the coronavirus crisis.

The centre will remain open to their own patients and those redirected to the Pinn. A message posted on the official website said: “The Pinn has been asked by the CCG to set up a GP Access service for Non Covid patients during this unprecedented crisis from 8am Saturday 28th March.

“From Tomorrow morning we will be closed to walk in patients other than acutely ill patients who cannot safely be redirected.

“We continue to remain available to our own patients for initial telephone consultations and booked face to face consultations where necessary.

“Unregistered patients will now be booked in to a GPAC appointment having been clinically triaged.

“These changes are temporary during this Covid crisis and the CCG has given it written reassurance that they are committed to reopening walk in cervices at the Pinn once his crisis is over.”

Last month it was revealed that an online petition resulted in saving the walk-in services.

The petition had over 6,000 signatures and stated that Harrow residents should have access to a walk-in centre all year round. Normal services will be resumed after the COVID-19 pandemic crisis.
