Local doctors or GPs provide an essential service for Islington residents. They are the first port of call for most of us when we develop a health problem. GP practices provide a huge variety of services and can refer you to to specialist hospital and community health services.
If you’re new to the borough and not yet registered, or if you’re still registered with a practice where you used to live, it only takes a few minutes to register with a local NHS GP practice. The practice will take care of everything, including transferring your medical records, which will enable your GP to understand your medical history and healthcare needs. This leaflet will help you find your nearest GP.
It doesn’t matter how long you have been living in Islington, or how long you are planning on living here - all residents are entitled to register with a GP practice.
