Improvements to Limehouse GP practice

The Limehouse Practice at Gill Street Health Centre in Tower Hamlets is being refurbished – creating a bigger, brighter GP practice with a brand new minor surgery suite and improved technology.

Strategic estates manager for Newham, Tower Hamlets and Waltham Forest clinical commissioning groups Jack Dunmore said: “Better technology means faster, more convenient services, including online triage where patients complete a simple online form which enables them to get the right service first time, every time. This approach also frees up staff time and creates longer appointments for those who do need a face to face consultation.”

The newly refurbished practice – which has more than 11,000 patients – also has more office space, creating a training environment where staff can develop their clinical expertise. The refurbishment, due to complete in December, is part of a series of improvements to local health centres.
