Changes to sexual health services
In October 2016 we implemented interim changes to our local sexual and reproductive health services to provide better access, extended opening hours and a better patient experience.
A new integrated service at Whitechapel now offers extended opening hours across six days of the week in newly refurbished premises, with excellent transport links, delivered by skilled, experienced staff. For more information on local sexual health services please visit www.bartshealth.nhs.uk/sexual-health.
Re-commissioning of sexual health services
The London Boroughs of Newham, Waltham Forest, Redbridge and Tower Hamlets will be re-commissioning sexual health services during 2017 to ensure services offer best value and meet local needs. A public consultation was undertaken in 2016 and using this information the London Borough of Tower Hamlets developed a full equality impact assessment of our local commissioning plan.
The re-commissioning process will start in early 2017 and no change in local services is expected until the autumn of 2017. Any changes to services that result from the re-commissioning will be carefully planned to minimise disruption to residents and ensure continuity of care.
Your feedback matters
We will continue to review the implemented changes to ensure our services remain accessible to all. We welcome feedback on all aspects of local sexual health services. If you would like to feedback on any aspect of sexual health services in Tower Hamlets please contact firstname.lastname@example.org
