About Clerkenwell Medical Practice
Finsbury Health Centre built between 1935 and 1938 as part of the ‘Finsbury Plan’ was an initiative by Alderman Harold Riley and Dr Katial, Chairman of the Public Health Committee to provide better conditions for the borough’s residents. It was the first public commission of Berthold Lubetkin and Tecton (an association of London architects) who were important in the Modern Movement in architecture.
Our premises are accessible for wheelchairs and all of our examination rooms have couches adapted for disability. We also have portable induction loops for the hard of hearing.
Islington Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG)
As of the 1st April 2013, NHS healthcare services for Islington patients are commissioned (i.e. bought) by Islington Clinical Commissioning Group (Islington CCG). CCGs have replaced the old PCT system.
We are commissioned by Islington CCG to provide General Practice primary care services to our patients. We are also commissioned to provide some enhanced services, for example our drug and alcohol service.
