ISLINGTON IHUB -  EVENING AND WEEKEND APPOINTMENTS!!

Islington IHUB offers increased access to GPs for patients registered at any Islington practice.

Islington has 3 hub. Registered patients are now able to book appointments with Islington doctors and nurses at an Islington GP hub when the practice is closed. Simply ask a receptionist for an ”I:Hub” appointment and they will try to offer you one that is both convenient for you and that also suits your health needs.

Islington GP hubs are open between 6.30pm and 8.00pm each weekday and from 8.00am to 8.00pm at the weekend.

If we are closed you can call the usual surgery number between 6.30pm to 8.00pm Mon to Fri and 8.00am to 8.00pm on Saturdays and Sundays and your call will be answered by i:Hub staff who will be able to assist you. These appointments are available for routine appointments and do not need to be urgent requests.

If you book an appointment you will be asked to give consent for the doctor or nurse to see your medical records, on this occasion only, in order to provide you with the best care.
