As of Monday 9 April 2018, NELFT has commenced the provision and delivery of the Urgent Care Centre services at Whipps Cross Hospital.

NELFT has been working collaboratively with partners to develop the urgent care pathway in Waltham Forest. Eighteen members of staff will TUPE from the previous provider Essex Partnership University Trust (EPUT) to NELFT.

NELFT’s Integrated Care Director for Waltham Forest, Sue Boon said: “We are incredibly pleased to be working alongside the CCG and our provider partners to develop the Urgent care pathway in Waltham Forest.”
