The Bingfield Primary Care Centre


Extensive healthcare facilities for 12,000 patients served by 2 GP practices and a resource centre for other practices in the area

Camden & Islington Community Solutions

The Bingfield Primary Care Centre was developed on land previously occupied by a community hall, the new centre is part of a £6.1 million development that also includes the Hanley Primary Care Centre opened in June 2005. Consultation and engagement with stakeholders, throughout all phases of the development process, has been key to understanding and integrating local needs and priorities.

Health Minister, John Hutton, said: “For too long Camden and Islington have suffered with inadequate facilities. All of this is now set to change. The project at Bingfield Street is one of six already identified for the first tranche of schemes. There will be many more to come in the future, transforming the quality and availability of primary care for patients in Camden and Islington.”

This series of planned developments for the London Boroughs of Camden and Islington aim to enhance the health and well-being of patients and staff, while being flexible and adaptable in order to meet the changing demands of community-based health and social care and other local services.

It is part of a Public Private Partnership (PPP) agreement between Community Solutions for Primary Care (CSPC), Partnerships for Health (PfH), Camden Primary Care Trust (PCT) and Islington Primary Care Trust (PCT).

The 'LIFTCo' that was formed as a result of this agreement (Camden & Islington Community Solutions Limited). Camden & Islington Community Solutions Limited is responsible for the maintenance of
external and internal fabric of the facility (Hard FM), with the tenant being responsible for
internal cleaning etc (Soft FM).
