RESIDENTS are being given the chance to voice their views on the future of health services in the East End at an NHS roadshow.
As part of the Health for North East London programme, services across the area are being transformed over the next 10 years which could see changes across seven primary care trusts, including Tower Hamlets.
And residents are being invited to four different locations from Thursday where NHS staff will be on-hand to give out information and answer any queries about the proposals.
Under the proposed changes, every patient in Tower Hamlets could soon have a 'super health centre', known as a polyclinic, on their doorstep where they could go for minor surgery or even give birth, rather than to their nearest hospital.
