Health E1 Homeless Medical Centre

How to register

We only register people who are street homeless, sofa surfing or in hostel accommodation in the borough of Tower Hamlets.

When you register at Health E1 Medical Centre your first point of contact may be with a Nurse Practitioner. All of our nursing team have undertaken advanced training to look after many of your health needs that previously only a doctor could do.

When registering you will be asked for a medical card or some other proof of your identification. If you do have any, please discuss this with the receptionist.

As part of registration with the practice we ask you to attend a new patient health check with our health care assistant. This involves answering some questions and undergoing a simple health check.

Am I registering with the right practice?

Please note that you must live within the practice boundary to be able to register with us. If you’re unsure, please go to Location map – or go to Find-a-doc and Find-a-dentist below to find your nearest GP or dentist.
