More GP appointments for Islington residents at evenings and weekends
If you live in Islington you can now access more evening and weekend appointments with a GP or nurse thanks to three primary care ‘hubs’ as part of the borough’s i:HUB service.
It might be that an evening or weekend appointment is more convenient, or maybe as a daytime carer the only time you have for yourself is at the weekend. These are just some of the situations where you might find it helpful to book an appointment with the i:HUB service. Appointments do not have to be urgent and are available to anyone registered with an Islington GP.
i:HUB appointments are available from 6:30pm - 8:00pm, Monday to Friday and from 8:00am - 8:00pm on the weekends and public holidays; however, opening hours will vary between the practices. Staffed by local GPs and nurses, the hubs are located at the following three GP practices:
- Andover Medical Centre, 270-282 Hornsey Road, N7 7QZ
- Ritchie Street Group Practice, 34 Ritchie Street, N1 0DG
- Islington Central Medical Centre, 28 Laycock Street, N1 1SW
At your appointment you will see an Islington GP or nurse who may or may not be from the practice you are registered with. The GP or nurse will have access to your medical record to ensure that you receive the best possible care and support.

By March 2019 everyone in England will benefit from access to general practice appointments in the evenings and weekends at a time that is most convenient to them. This is part of a national drive to help improve access to general practice and get the best possible outcomes for patients. Further information is available at www.england.nhs.uk/gpaccess
