Hamilton Park Dentist

I went to see this dentist as I saw they accepted NHS patients, I was a bit apprehensive when seeing the surgery as it did not seem quite as professional as I am used to. I was told by him that I had 2 cavities when I had my consultation and was pressured (lightly) to make an appointment then and there to have these treated. I didn't make the appointmwent as I didn't have the money at the time and something did not feel quite right. After umming and ahhing for about a month I decided to get a second opinion from Millbank dental care as recommended by someone on this site and I am so glad that I did! I told the dentist I saw there about what I was told regarding my two cavities she did a thorough exam and x-rays and... nothing. no cavities at all! In fact she said my teeth were so good that I wouldn't need a check up for 1 year rather thean the usual 6 months... I am not sure why the first dentist misled me but I am VERY glad I got the second opinion!

excellent, doctor

Dr Natalie jeffcote, at 2 Mitchison Road, london n1 (off essex road) is an excellent doctor. Caring, non-judgemental and listens to you. I have a health condition and she never makes me feel like 'a patient'. i would recommend her and am glad to have such a doctor, even though i hardly go, its good to know shes there... we all deserve excellent care!!

Wed Mar 11


Right now I live opposite the old stadium and I can say that it is a great area to live in. So much so that I am looking to stay in the area and move into a new house in Feb. If you are looking for a house share, I have an ad posted on moveflat for a couple - have a look.

The flats in the development that I can see into from the street look tiny so I'm not sure if you get space and value for your money....

There are loads of shops, bars and restaurants nearby so if you like the flat, welcome to the neighbourhood!

Fri Jan 02

You can find a lot of history and images of highbury quadrant and the church at the Islington archive in St John St, Islington. You can phone and make an appointment and they just pull out all the archive information out for you for free. It's facinating. I recommend it. Good luck.

New home needed for Persian Cross cats

I have 2 Persian Cross 3 year old cats, brother & sister, whom I am reluctantly considering rehoming. I live in Highbury at the moment & have a garden but have to move soon & I dont think it will be somewhere with outside space. My cats are used to being able to get outdoors so dragging them to a new place with no garden just seems unfair. I hate the thought of losing them but if the right person & situation came along then I know it would be better for them to have a lovely home, somewhere more settled..If anyone can help, please contact me @

The Right New Home Wanted for Persian Cross Brother and Sister

Im just wondering if there is anyone in the Highbury area or nearby who might consider offering a new home to my 2 beautiful Persian cross 3 year old cats?. They are so gorgeous and it is breaking my heart to even consider giving them away but my own life at the moment is very hectic and I dont want to drag them around from pillar to post as they must find the instability of it all very unnerving..I considered re-homing them before but none of the people I saw seemed to be right..I want them to have lovely lives in a stable home environment..I know they are only cats but they mean an awful lot to me..so if anyone hears of anyone looking, then please do contact me..

Thanks a mil..

hardy family

i'm researching my fathers family tree- his mother Violet Hetty Hardy b1887 was born in a house allegedly knocked down to build Arsenal FCs north stand in about 1912. (She married in 1909 so had moved by then). Are there any Hardy relatives still in the area? Any local historians know anything about houses on the north stand site pre 1912? All help welcome. My father is 81 and i'd like to find out a bit more for him

I tried a dentist at the N1 practise in essex road and he had the cheek to take a mobile phone call while giving me a filling.

I am not sure of the situation at present, but they were not taking on new patients the last time I was In London.

Tue Mar 07

I am currently living in Poland and always return to Highbury to the Miller practice when the need arises. This is due to the high standard of care and service offered there and not as might be supposed the dearth of the same in this country.

I strongly recommend this practice and all the staff connected with it. Selfishness on my part prevents me from recommending my own particular doctor. I am sure you understand.
