Ritchie Street Neighbourhood Health Centre was originally known as The Doctors Group Practice. The practice was formed in the 1920s and is one of the oldest practices in Islington. The practice was first located at 83 Barnsbury Road and later in Gibson Square, where there was a railway carriage in the garden in which the patients were seen. The practice then moved to Batchelor Street. The partnership grew along with the list size and the premises soon became too small. In 1997 the practice moved to current purpose-built premises and became know as the Ritchie Street Group Practice.

The practice has a full complement of attached staff including health visitor, community matron/district nursing service, palliative nursing care, dieticians, community midwife, psychologist, counsellor, primary care mental health service, and adult and child psychology services.

The practice liaises closely with university College London Hospital NHS Trust and The Whittington Hospital NHS Trust for medical care. We are also a training practice for medical students and junior doctors.

From April 2010 Ritchie Street Neighbourhood Health Centre has grown to include a new medical practice (Angel Medical Practice). This further improves the value and convenience of the service, including a Urgent Care Centre throughout the year, from 8.00am to 8.00pm, Monday to Friday. Saturday, Sunday and Bank Holidays from 9.00am to 6.00pm.
