Welcome to Chrisp Street Health Centre

Picture of Health Centre

Chrisp Street Health Centre is a large, friendly, modern GP practice in Poplar, Tower Hamlets. We serve the population living around Chrisp Street Market and look after just over 15 500 patients.

Chrisp Street Medical Practice is committed to providing a rich and diverse service for all of our patients, enabling each patient to have access to their medical needs to fulfil their potential. We strive to offer personal, continuous care. All patients and their families are allocated their “Own Doctor” when they register. We encourage you to see your Own Doctor wherever possible. As well as offering appointments for you to see them face to face, we can make arrangements for you to speak to your GP by phone at a pre-booked time or electronically via an accuRx.

NHS App

Owned and run by the NHS, the NHS App is a simple and secure way to access a range of NHS services on your smartphone or tablet — including prescriptions and appointments. You can also access NHS App services from the browser on your desktop or laptop computer.

There are currently high rates of Group A strep and scarlet fever in the UK. Scarlet fever, which is caused by the bacteria Group A streptococcus, is usually a mild illness, but it is highly infectious. Scarlet fever is much more common in children than in adults, and it is important that children with scarlet fever are seen by a healthcare professional, so that they can be started on antibiotics.
