Islington Council’s Health Scrutiny Committee will be hearing an update on the Finsbury Health Centre from North Central London NHS at their meeting on Thursday, 24 May in the Town Hall on Upper Street, 7.30 pm. The Michael Palin Stammering Centre has moved next door, freeing up space in FHC. While blood testing has been a welcome addition, services like physiotherapy and sexual health which were due to move upstairs to the more accessible ground floor still have not done so. It seems that while windows on the south side were painted, they weren’t made weatherproof, a frustrating sitution for staff who had been looking forward to finally having computer access up there! There are also continuing problems getting physio appointments at FHC due to understaffing. Philip Allwyn and Martin Machray, respectively Chief Operating Officer and Communications Officer at North Central London NHS (the cluster of five borough PCTs which replaced the local trusts) will be appearing. The meeting is open to the public, so do come along to ask questions and make your views heard.
