Camden Health Improvement Practice is a multi-disciplinary team providing primary health care to homeless people and those with substance misuse issues in Camden.

The surgery is located in the basement of The Margarete Centre and we offer booked appointments as well as a drop-in service. We may ask you to return later if we are very busy and your health problem is not an emergency or urgent.

Please be aware that because of the nature of drop-in services, there may also be a lengthy wait to be seen during busy periods.

We have a strict prescribing policy to which all doctors and nurses adhere. Please ask the medical team for more information.
