Primary care

Around 280,000 people are registered with one of Camden’s 34 GP surgeries, who deliver most local primary care services. Primary care also includes other services such as dentists, pharmacies and optometrists.

If you are a Camden resident or are registered with a Camden GP you can book an evening or weekend NHS GP appointment at one of four local locations by phoning 020 7391 9979.

Since April 2017, Camden CCG has had full responsibility for commissioning and contracting local GP services. Priorities include ensuring timely and appropriate access, commissioning for quality and outcomes, supporting independence and self-care, increasing integration with community services, and developing our providers and workforce.

There are two GP federations in Camden: Haverstock Healthcare and Camden Healthcare Evolution (CHE).

Camden’s general practices work in five GP neighbourhoods: NW5, CHE West, CHE South, South Camden and NW3. A GP neighbourhood is a group of practices who work together to plan, coordinate and deliver care. The aim is to care for patients in a way which is joined up, community based, proactive and focused on the whole needs of a person. To achieve this, GP neighbourhoods work closely with other health and social care organisations including Camden Council, the voluntary sector and other NHS services.
