Seeking patient views on plans to move the practice to Wood Green Shopping City
We are seeking patients’ views on plans to move the practice to Wood Green Shopping City.
What we are proposing
The NHS and council in Haringey are working together on a proposal for an integrated health and wellbeing hub in Wood Green. It is proposed that this hub will be in Wood Green Shopping City (The Mall, 159 High Road, Wood Green, London N22 6YQ).
This hub will bring a range of different health services together into a central place in Haringey and provide additional care for residents in an area that has seen significant population growth.
The plan is for Hornsey and Wood Green Practice to move to this new location and be part of the new hub during Autumn/Winter 2023. The new location is about half a mile away from the current location.
Why do we want to do this?
At the moment, Hornsey and Wood Green Practice only has three rooms, and the number of patients at the practice is growing fast. In this new location the Practice would have more space and it would also have space to grow and expand further.
The benefits for patients include larger premises for the Practice (more space), modern facilities, and excellent links to community health services and tests. The new location also has much better public transport links.
Other services at the new Hub will include Whittington Health’s community health services, dental services, audiology (hearing) and maternity. The new Community Diagnostic Centre (CDC) at the Wood Green Shopping City will also give patients easy access to diagnostic tests including blood tests, eye tests, x-rays, and ultrasound.
Location and travel
Wood Green Shopping City has very good public transport links. Over 75 different buses run through Wood Green and stop directly outside the shopping centre. The main bus routes in to Wood Green are: 29, 67, 121, 123,141, 144, 184, 221, 230, 232, 243, 329, W3 and W4.
The shopping centre is 0.2 miles from Wood Green underground station and 0.4 miles from Turnpike Lane station, both on the Piccadilly line.
The shopping centre has 1200 car park spaces, although there is a fee for parking (£2 for up to 2 hours).
