Patient services delivered in the community.
Commissioners & Partners
Over the past 5 years, we have worked in close partnership with Newham PCT, and more recently with Newham CCG, who are our main commissioners to expand the range of services available in the community.We receive referrals from all GPs within the borough of Newham.
Newham CCG is structured so that individual surgeries are grouped into clusters led by an elected Cluster Lead. Each cluster also has an elected Newham CCG Board member to represent the views of the cluster at Board level.
The clusters collaborate with individual surgeries and the CCG Board and Executive to ensure that local needs are discussed and accomodated.The clusters also act as a channel for all key stakeholders of the local health economy, including service providers, voluntary and third sector organisations, the local authority and public health. Each cluster is supported by dedicated Newham CCG management staff.

We have a well established infrastructure and operating model which is flexible, and therefore easily modified to respond to peaks, troughs and seasonal demand for our services.
All of our Clinical Leads, and Directors work with local cluster groups .
We therefore have strong links with Clinical Leads from our surrounding boroughs, which not only provides us with good peer support networks but the ability to respond quickly to opportunities that arise to support and develop cluster based services.
We have recently collaborated with two of the biggest trusts in the country, Barts Health and East London Foundation Trust.
We are working together with them to create an efficient care pathway for patients that are being referred to out musculoskeletal and physiotherapy services.
Barts Health NHS Trust was formed in April 2012 following the merger of Barts and The London NHS Trust, Newham University Hospital NHS Trust and Whipps Cross University Hospital NHS Trust.

East London Foundation Trust
East London NHS Foundation Trust (formerly known as East London and The City University Mental Health NHS Trust) was founded in April 2000. The new ELFT brought together health services from three community trusts in Newham, Tower Hamlets, The City and Hackney; gathering resources and much of London’s major health expertise to become one of the UK’s largest specialist NHS providers.
