North East London Health & Care Partnership logo

Our partners and collaboratives

We are ambitious for the change that we can create for north east London. But we will only meet that with a strong, broad partnership that brings together health and local authorities, the wider public sector, voluntary organisations and local employers. 

The North East London Health and Care Partnership is the collective term for our whole health and care system, which includes local people, our borough-based partnerships, provider collaboratives, clinical networks and NHS North East London.

With hundreds of health and care organisations serving more than two million local people, we have to make sure that we are utilising our resources to the fullest and ensure that work is done and decisions are made at the most appropriate level.

Find out more about the organisations and networks that make up our care system below.

Our borough partnerships

In north east London we have seven place-based partnerships aligned to each of our boroughs – Barking & DagenhamHaveringRedbridgeTower HamletsNewhamWaltham Forest, City & Hackney.

These local partnerships bring together the NHS, councils, GPs, providers of health and social care services, the voluntary sector, people and communities, to agree what works well with and what is needed by local people.

They also work to tackle some of the wider things that can impact our health, such as housing, employment, and poverty.

Our provider collaboratives

 We work closely with other NHS organisations in north east London including:

Provider collaboratives are partnerships which bring together multiple NHS trusts to deliver services more effectively across a bigger area, with a shared purpose and effective decision-making arrangements.

Provider collaboratives work together to improve productivity and efficiency so that our resources are used as efficiently as possible. This could involve working at scale where it is effective to do so, improving our digital approach, raising standards, and sharing ideas and best practice. They will have a key role to play in developing the workforce we need for sustainable health and care in the future.

In north east London we have provider collaboratives across our acute trusts, mental health trusts, community care, VCSE sector and increasingly collaboration across primary care.

Our NHS North East London teams work collaboratively day in and day out with our provider, local authority and VCSE sector colleagues at a borough level for our local communities, and this is the core of what our new organisation does.

Clinical networks

These transformational multidisciplinary groups are focused on disease, pathways and specific work streams. They bring health, care and voluntary sector professionals and patients together from across north east London to share best practice and look at how to implement the best outcomes for patient and resident care.

These clinical networks proactively focus on prevention, support innovation, develop the workforce with partners, improve patient experience, and make the best use of our resources and assets. They will help to support and develop the delivery of care at a borough level and will provide supportive leadership and resource to deliver the best outcomes for people.
