PATIENTS were sharing their views on the future of healthcare in the East End at an NHS roadshow today.
Around 80 residents dropped into the London Muslim Centre in Whitechapel Road today to hear more about the proposals to transform health services across Tower Hamlets.
The possible plans, part of the Health for North East London programme, would include building more super health centres’, known as a polyclinics, in the borough.
And the Royal London Hospital in Whitechapel would become one of only two major acute hospitals in the area.
Joint Clinical Director for the programme, Dr Mike Gill said: “It is all about local people’s health services and this community needs to be involved in these plans.”
The consultation was hosted by the London Muslim Centre as part of its Health Connex fair.
