About NHS North East London

North east London has a growing population of over two million people and is a vibrant, diverse and distinctive area of London steeped in history and culture.

NHS North East London, along with our partners, works to make sure that the population of north east London are healthy and thriving, with good levels of mental wellbeing, and good access to high-quality health and care services.

We work with and for all the people of north east London to create meaningful improvements in health, wellbeing and equity.

We do this through planning and commissioning health services across north east London to meet our population’s needs, making sure all parts of the local health system work effectively together. We do this by bringing together health partners, local authorities and the voluntary, community and social enterprise sector, alongside residents, patients and service users to improve how we plan and deliver care and support services. 

We set strategies, policies and plans where these are best done at the scale of the whole of north east London. We also set the overall financial strategy for the local health system and make sure that everyone can get core services in an appropriate setting.

We serve the population of north east London across our eight local authority areas:

We were formed on 1 July 2022 following the Health and Care Act 2022 and replaced North East London Clinical Commissioning Group. We are responsible for deciding how the local healthcare budget of nearly £4 billion is spent and we do this by working with our local health and care partners.

Our Board, headed by our Chair Marie Gabriel CBE, is responsible for making sure that any decisions we make are made openly, transparently and in line with our stated purpose, values and priorities.
