Adult patients at Barnet Hospital who have a minor injury or illness should check in to the urgent treatment centre (UTC) which is located at the front of the building instead of going to the emergency department (ED).

The entrance to the UTC is to the right of the main hospital entrance and hospital security staff will help direct you. The UTC is open from 8am-10pm every day. Outside of these hours, an adult with a minor injury or illness will be given an appointment to attend the UTC the following day.

All children attending at any time of the day should continue to check in at the emergency department, which is located at the back of the hospital. They will be assessed by a triage nurse but may be moved to the UTC afterwards if appropriate.

We would like to remind you to call NHS 111 or log on to and you will be directed to the most appropriate place for treatment.
