Chrisp Street Practice is a large, modern and very friendly practice located close to the market adjacent to East India Dock Road, in Chrisp Street, Poplar, Tower Hamlets.
We serve the population living in the area around Chrisp Street Market and look after over 14,000 patients.
We have thirteen permanent Doctors working here, and as a "Training Practice" we often have one or two Registrar Doctors on the staff completing their General Practice training. We train medical students from the Barts and the London Medical School.
We have a large supporting team of nurse practitioners and prescribers, practice nurses, assistant practitioners and phlemotomists.
We work very closely with our allied community nursing, psychology and health visiting teams, as well as visiting midwives.
The practice offers the services of health advocates, interpreters, stop smoking advisor, benefits advisor, alcohol advisor and specialist nurses. If you feel you would like to use these services, just ask the reception staff.
Despite being a large practice, we like to offer personal care, and encourage all patients to generally see the doctor they are registered with, or their usual doctor, unless that doctor is unavailable, for example due to study leave or holidays.
We ask all members of the same family to register with the same doctor.
We have surgeries every morning and afternoon. We also offer surgeries on some evenings and Saturday mornings for those who have trouble getting to daytime surgeries because of work or other commitments.
