Noticeboard

We are following advice from NHS England that all patients must be triaged first before they can be seen. We are aware this has caused an increase in our phone traffic and at times patients have trouble accessing us. We are aware of this issue and have purchased a new telephone system with increased lines, this will be coming in the next 4-6 weeks, we ask patients to be patient with us during this very busy time.
Please think before you shout or abuse our staff, we are trying our best and do not tolerate abuse of any kind.

FLU - We are fast approaching flu season! We will be vaccinating patients on an appointment only basis, we have not yet received our flu vaccines. Please note that people in the 50-64-year old age group will not be vaccinated until November and December, providing there is sufficient vaccine and no appointments will be offered for this age group until then. This is to ensure that those who are most at risk are vaccinated first. If you are 50-64 and you are in one of the other groups which are eligible for the flu vaccination, for example, you have a health condition which puts you at risk from the flu, you will be invited earlier.

IHUB INFORMATION

  • Offers you the same services as your usual GP excluding home visits.

  • You will need to give your consent for a Doctor or Nurse to gain access to your full medical record.

  • Your name and NHS number will be used to confirm you are an Islington registered NHS patient and to identify the GP surgery you are registered with. 

Your medical record will only be accessed at the point of consultation with a Doctor or Nurse for that appointment only. After your appointment concludes, IHUB send a digital report of the consultation to your registered GP surgery. Any test results ordered by IHUB will be sent to your registered GP surgery.
