Relocation Patient Information Letter

Important Information about your GP Practice - The Island Medical Centre will be temporarily operating from Docklands Medical Centre from Monday 12th of April 2021.

We are following up our first letter sent in December 2020 to inform you that the Island Medical Centre will now be temporarily relocating from its current premises at Roserton Street, Isle of Dogs, London E14 3PG to the Docklands Medical Centre premises in April 2021.

In an effort to minimise disruption to our patients, the move will take place over the weekend. The Island Medical Centre will be closing at 6:30pm on Friday 9th April 2021 at Roserton Street and will reopen in the temporary premises at Docklands Medical Centre at 8.00am on Monday 12th April 2021.

The renovation will increase clinical space and improve practice facilities. We hope this enhanced environment will improve the service we offer. This work will start in April for an expected duration of 6 months.

Docklands Medical Centre is located at 100 Spindrift Avenue, Isle of Dogs, London E14 9WU (0.9 miles away) which is approximatively a 19 minute walk, a 6 minute drive or 10-15minute journey by bus (routes 135 or D7)

What does this mean for you?

You do not need to do anything. Although the practice will be moving temporarily to Docklands Medical Centre, you will continue to be a registered patient of the Island Medical Practice* and our GP services will continue to be provided by your existing medical team. Docklands Medical Centre offers enough administrative and clinical space to accommodate the Island Medical Centre practice.

  • You will continue to be registered with the practice when it moves to its temporary location.
  • The doctors and nurses will remain the same and will continue to have access to your medical records.
  • The appointment system will not change.
  • The practice’s telephone number will remain the same.

We encourage patients to contact with us online first. Alternatively, we can offer a telephone consultation/ video consultation. Attendance at the practice is by appointment only in line with Covid-19 requirements to keep both patients and staff safe.

If you have any concerns about accessing services during this period, please contact the practice (contact provided at the bottom of the letter) who will support you or discuss alternative options. 


What happens next?

We will write you again closer the end of the renovation works to inform you about the move back date to the Island Medical site at Roserton Street. In the meantime, we will keep our patients informed via our practice website
