A healthcare firm has held on to the contract to run out-of-hours GP services in Islington.

NHS bosses announced this week that Harmoni has won the contract to provide the services to Islington and Camden from January next year. It has been doing so since August 2010.

A spokesman said: “NHS North Central London is confident that this was a fair and transparent process and no objections were received within the designated ‘cooling off’ period after the decision was made.

“The successful bidder (Harmoni) demonstrated during the tendering process that they can provide a high quality service within the financial envelope we have available to us.”
