HEALTH secretary Andrew Lansley will be visiting the East End tomorrow.

Mr Lansley is dropping into the Bromley-by-Bow Centre in St Leonard's Street in one of the first visits in his new role in the coalition government.

He is expected to announce a new NHS policy which will affect GPs.

The health secretary recently announced that he was halting plans for 100 polyclinics in London and the re-organisation of GPs across the capital, which he said was just the start of a major rethink of policy under the new coalition.

Tower Hamlets has one polyclinic with plans already in place for more in the borough.
