Islington GP Federation exists to ensure Islington residents get free and equal access to good, safe and cost effective primary care, well into the future. It is owned by Islington GP practices who want to protect the best of general practice. Its talented clinical and operational team share a passion for improving local health and social care.
We believe that working together with other providers is the key to transforming the NHS. We are proud of our existing partnerships, including with Whittington Health NHS Trust, Age UK Islington, Camden & Islington NHS Foundation Trust and Federated4Health Limited. Our ethos is to be open, fair and collegiate.
When Jeremy Corbyn sponsored our NHS70 Parliamentary Awards entry back in the Spring, he commented: "The Islington GP Federation does such great work in my community and I didn't hesitate to nominate them as we celebrate and commemorate the foundation of our NHS 70 years ago. I wish them all the very best in the finals and will certainly be rooting for them."

The judges said:
"The multidisciplinary team at Islington GP Federation have taken a really proactive approach to assessing the health needs of the area they serve, including some of the hardest to reach communities, and working together with partners to put in place targeted programmes which make a real difference to peoples’ health and wellbeing. It was an honour to meet them and present them with this award today, and I hope this recognition encourages them to carry on this great work.”
