Tower Hamlets Primary Care Trust
Tower Hamlets PCT aims to improve the health of local people living in Tower Hamlets in east London, including reducing inequalities in health and modernising services for local people. This will be achieved through assessing the health needs of our communities, commissioning services from hospital trusts and other local organisations, and by providing a range of services.
We are supporting general practice, bringing more GPs and practice staff to Tower Hamlets, developing the range of services available from practices and health centres, and improving premises near to where people live.
One of our priorities is to work with the local authority and other community organisations to integrate health and social care. Progress has already been made with some integrated teams, and more work is underway to make sure local people receive convenient, co-ordinated and good quality services.
