From 30 March a new access and advice team will be the
single point of contact for all adult social care and community rehabilitation services
Intermediate care and rehabilitation staff from Whittington Health will come together
with Islington Council Social care staff, into the Islington social care and
rehabilitation service. The team will provide good quality advice, guidance and
signposting which will support people stay independent for longer.
The service will have two teams - based in the north and south of the borough, at Vorley
Road and Calshot Street. These offices will no longer be open to the public.
All referrals to adult social care and community rehabilitation (REACH and CRT) should
now go through the access and advice team. The map of medicine has been updated to
reflect this change.
The access and advice team will be moving from Calshot Street to the Council’s
Customer Centre at 222 Upper Street. The contact details are the same as the former
