New GP practice in Tottenham Hale is officially open


We are pleased to announce that the new GP practice in Tottenham Hale was officially opened yesterday (Monday 10 October) by the Mayor of Haringey, Councillor Ali Gul Ozbek. The new practice will allow up to 7,000 people to register with a GP.

The opening of this new GP practice – Tottenham Hale Medical Practice - is the result of a collaboration between Haringey CCG, Haringey Council, Healthwatch Haringey, NHS England and Lee Valley Estates. The practice, located on Lebus Street in Hale Village, will provide much needed primary care capacity for residents in the Tottenham Hale area.

Short speeches were given by David Lammy MP, Councillor Jason Arthur, Lead Member for Health; Dr Peter Christian, Haringey CCG’s Chair, Sharon Grant, Healthwatch Chair and Liz Wise, Director of Primary Care Commissioning at NHS England (London Region) at the opening event.

Attendees had a tour of the practice and an opportunity to meet practice staff from Lawrence House Surgery who will be running the new practice.

Dr Peter Christian, Haringey CCG’s Chair said: “It has taken a solid collaborative effort to make opening the new GP surgery in Tottenham Hale a reality and we would like to thank everyone involved for their hard work. We are delighted that local residents will now be able to access primary care services much more easily, when they need it.”

Fiona Erne, Head of Primary Care in North Central London for NHS England (London) said: “We are delighted that Tottenham Hale Medical Practice has now opened, responding to the concerns rightly highlighted by Healthwatch and local people. The practice will provide high quality GP services for residents and will make a real difference in the local community.”
