The Nightingale Practice: artists’ impression

Building work started this month on a new purpose-built surgery to give Clapton residents access to improved clinical and community facilities.

The new surgery will be built on the site of the old Nightingale Practice on Kenninghall Road and is expected to cost £2.3 million. Construction is due to be completed in September 2011 and, in the meantime, the practice is operating from temporary accommodation next to the old building.

Steve Gilvin, NHS City and Hackney Director of Primary Care Commissioning, said: “This has been a truly collaborative project, with the local community actively involved shaping this building to meet their needs.”

The coronavirus outbreak meant that the Hackney Citizen was unable to print a monthly newspaper for three months.

We're grateful that we have since been able to resume printing. This would not have been possible without the generosity of our readers, whose donations kept the paper from disappearing completely at a distressing time for residents.

A huge thank you to everyone who gave their time and money to support us through the lockdown, and to those who continue to do so as we slowly recover from the dramatic fall in advertising revenues, on top of the existing challenges threatening the future of local journalism.

A one-off donation or a regular contribution from anyone who can afford it will help our small team keep the newspaper in print and the website running in the coming months and years.

Thank you for your support, and stay safe.
