St George’s Health and Wellbeing Hub

We are seeking your views on our proposals for the St George’s Health and Wellbeing Hub in Hornchurch. Health and care partners across North East London are working together to provide much needed integrated community-based health services in Havering. 

Back in 2019, the Prime Minister announced that NELFT and BHR CCGs were to benefit from £17 million of funding to take forward plans for the new health and wellbeing centre at the former St George's Hospital site in Suttons Lane, Hornchurch.

Due to the impacts of the coronavirus pandemic and the need for local health and care services to prioritise our response to this, the progress with the health and wellbeing hub has been slower than anticipated. However, we are now in a position to move forward with the development and we are keen to hear your views on the proposals.

NELFT will be a key provider as part of the new health and wellbeing centre which will offer outpatient based services, GP services and space for local voluntary and community groups. It will focus on older people but will benefit the whole community, acting as base for a joint team of health and social care professionals working across Barking, Havering and Redbridge.

Oliver Shanley, Chief Executive for NELFT, said “We are excited to be part of this new development for residents of Havering, delivering a more joined up approach to care locally and collaborating with our partners in the NHS, local authority and voluntary sector to really develop and deliver an asset for the local community.”

Over the coming weeks we will be sharing details of how you can get involved and share your views.
