What is the Neighbourhoods programme?

GP practices have joined with residents, Homerton Hospital, community groups, mental health providers, social care, and voluntary sector organisations to create eight ‘Neighbourhood’ areas.

Each Neighbourhood includes four to seven GP practices who will work as part of a team of local services to coordinate health and social care in the community to help improve the lives of around 30,000 – 50,000 who live in that neighbourhood area. These teams will also support residents to use support for other areas which affect their health and wellbeing, such as advice on healthy living, activities to help reduce social isolation, local exercise facilities, advice and guidance for debt and links to housing.

The aim of Neighbourhoods is to bring different services together to provide care closer to home which is better suited to the unique needs of local communities, prevent ill health and help reduce unnecessary hospital admissions.
