Virtual Induction Videos 

These virtual induction recordings have been produced to complement your local induction, so please do have a look at the videos most relevant to your role. 

Introduction for all staff

Messages from our Patients   

We asked patients from across Barnet what they would like new members of their primary care team to know about what matters most to them, here is a selection of their answers:- 

EMIS training 

EMIS Web is the clinical IT system used in GP practices in Barnet and therefore an integral part of your induction will be to familiarize yourself with EMIS and the other IT systems central to working in primary care. 

This video presentation provides an introduction to EMIS training with Agnes Rieu. 

If you would like to arrange more detailed EMIS training please contact Agnes at

Medicines Management Introduction
