We know that the number of people living in Tower Hamlets is growing rapidly, and demand for services is increasing. We want to make sure that we can meet this demand and that local people are able to access the care they need, when they need it. By working together with other local health and social care organisations, we can support local people to live longer, healthier lives.
You can find out more about our key transformation programmes below.
Tower Hamlets Together
Tower Hamlets Together is a partnership of local health and social care organisations working to improve the health and wellbeing of people in Tower Hamlets. It is made up of Tower Hamlets CCG working with Barts Health NHS Trust, East London Foundation Trust, Tower Hamlets GP Care Group and the London Borough of Tower Hamlets.
Together we are working to deliver innovative, integrated, and person-centred care to everyone living in Tower Hamlets. This includes ensuring that the full scope of resources and services available in the borough are used effectively to meet the needs of individuals and local communities, giving people in Tower Hamlets more options when it comes to the care they receive. Please visit the Tower Hamlets Together website for more information.
Transforming Services Together
Tower Hamlets CCG has joined forces with Newham and Waltham Forest CCGs and Barts Health NHS Trust to develop the Transforming Services Together programme, which is looking to invest over £100 million in new health services and buildings over the next five years. We have developed proposals that respond to some of the challenges we face locally and take advantage of the opportunities available to us. Please visit the Transforming Services Together website for more information.
North east London Sustainability and Transformation Plan
Tower Hamlets is involved in the development of a north east London-wide sustainability and transformation plan (STP), which will set out how local health and care services will transform and become sustainable over the next five years, building and strengthening local relationships and ultimately delivering the Five Year Forward View vision.
In order to create a better future for the NHS, we must make changes to how local people live, access care, and how care is delivered. This doesn’t mean doing less for patients or reducing the quality of care provided. It means more preventative care, finding new ways to meet people’s needs, and identifying ways to do things more efficiently. Please visit the NEL STP website to find out more information.

Tower Hamlets Local Transformation Plan for Children and Young People Mental Health and Emotional Wellbeing 2018/2019
Tower Hamlets has ongoing commitment to improve the mental health of children and young people. This is reflected in all main local strategies including the Tower Hamlets Health and Wellbeing Strategy (2016), the Children and Families Plan (2016-2019) and theTower Hamlets Together Born Well Growing Well Programme.
Every year Tower Hamlets CCG and partner agencies work together to produce a Local Transformation Plan for Children and Young People Mental Health and Emotional Wellbeing. The plan describes how Tower Hamlets, as a system, intend to transform the way it develops and provide services to improve outcomes for children and young people’s mental health and demonstrates how we use available resources to achieve this aim. The plan is about all the services for children and families working together, not just those whose only role is mental health.
The 2018/19 plan articulates our achievements to date and refreshes our vision and priorities for 2018-2021 in line with the local priorities and with national policies implementing the Five Years Forward View plan, the Winterbourne View – Time for Change and Transforming Care and the more recent Government strategy, the Green Paper: Transforming Children and Young People’s Mental Health Provision (2017).
The draft plan has been submitted for assurance by NHS England, as required by national policy. Over the next 6 weeks we will continue to work with stakeholders to validate and further develop the plan in response to the feedback from NHS England assurance process. The final plan will be published when it is approved by the Tower Hamlets Health and Wellbeing Board in early 2019.
