Call our reception on 020 7700 9700 for an appointment. The hubs are staffed by local GPs and nurses, and located at:

St Johns Way Medical Centre – 96 St John’s Way, London, N19 3RN

Ritchie Street Group Practice 34 Ritchie Street, N1 0DG

Islington Central Medical Centre 28 Laycock Street, N1 1SW

When the surgery and i:HUB are closed call 111 for the out of hours GP service.

111 is the NHS non-emergency number. It’s fast, easy and free. Call 111 and speak to a highly trained adviser, supported by healthcare professionals. They will ask you a series of questions to assess your symptoms and immediately direct you to the best medical care for you. NHS 111 is available 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. Calls are free from landlines and mobile phones.

If you have a life-threatening emergency please call 999.

If you are COVID-19 positive please do not come into any of our buildings, unless absolutely necessary / specifically invited in by a clinician.

Patients without respiratory symptoms or who are COVID-19 negative no longer need to wear face masks when coming in for an appointment, unless this is their personal preference.

Do you have a query about COVID-19 or COVID-19 vaccinations?

If one of our clinicians test positive for COVID-19 we may need to cancel your pre-booked appointment at short notice. We apologise in advance if this affects you or a member of your family. If you have a pre-booked appointment and do not hear from us please assume that your appointment is going ahead as normal.

If you need to come into any of our surgeries and have respiratory symptoms (coughs, wheezing, etc.) please continue to wear a facemask / face covering, if tolerated. This is for the safety of our other patients, our staff and our community. Clinicians seeing these patients will wear masks as part of their personal protective equipment (PPE).
