  • BHR CCGs: Ceri Jacob
  • City and Hackney CCG: David Maher
  • Newham CCG: Selina Douglas
  • Tower Hamlets CCG: Simon Hall

Following several months of development and planning with committee members, the north east London Joint Commissioning Committee (JCC) met in public for the first time on 9 May – and it was fantastic to see so many people there. This first meeting considered the East London Health and Care Partnership’s plan to improve urgent and emergency care, increase the availability of specialist clinical treatments, encourage better use of buildings and facilities, improve recruitment and retention of doctors, nurses and other healthcare professionals and increase the use of digital technology.
The meeting also looked at the committee’s terms of reference, the transformation programme around improving outpatient services and our forward plan. The JCC will be held in public every other month. The agenda and relevant papers for each meeting will be available on CCG websites. Each CCG website features an area with information on the Alliance and JCC in the ‘About us’ section.

The North East London Operating Plan was published recently, refreshing existing plans to enable organisations to continue to work together across the healthcare system.

This operating plan explains how providers and commissioners will work together to improve services and manage within their collective budgets.
An estates strategy for north east London continues to be developed, setting out the current estate held by all NHS providers and commissioners across north east London and the challenges in making sure these are fit for purpose. This report (and an accompanying summary) will be finalised in the next few weeks.

Jane Milligan who is the Accountable Officer for the NHS North East London Commissioning Alliance, is continuing to meet with a wide range of local and national stakeholders to support the work of the ELHCP and the alliance.

They have been awarded funding from the NHS England community services development fund to deliver specialist community perinatal mental health services across north east London. This means better services for those experiencing mental health problems during pregnancy or soon after the birth of a child.

This is just one of many areas of focus for them as a health service and as they continue to work closely with their colleagues right across the healthcare system.

Community is at the heart of what we deliver – from our main office staff through to our committed and passionate drivers.
  • Minibus hire – a low cost alternative: We provide community groups, clubs and non-profit organisations in Hackney with a financially supported scheme to access cheap minibuses - Group Transport.
