About us

Tower Hamlets Together is a partnership of local health and social care organisations with an ambition to improve the health and wellbeing of people living in Tower Hamlets. The organisations involved are:

The partnership of these organisations (minus the CCG and Tower Hamlets CVS) has been in place for some time and was previously known as ‘Tower Hamlets Integrated Provider Partnership’ (THIPP).

Recently there have been two significant developments that will strengthen the Tower Hamlets Together partnership even further. Firstly, in 2015, Tower Hamlets was awarded ‘Vanguard’ status by NHS England for its multi-speciality community provider programme. This means the programme receives support from NHS England to develop innovative models of care which other parts of the country can then learn from.

Secondly, in April 2016, Tower Hamlets CCG announced that the partnership was to become the new provider of community health services (such as community nursing) in the borough. This will enable even better coordinated care to be provided to patients, outside of traditional hospital environments.

Although Tower Hamlets Together is made up of a number of different partners, we are striving to develop a shared culture which provides person-centred, coordinated care to everyone who uses our services.

Working with you

Working with you

The only way we can ensure health and social care services meet your needs and address some of the challenges described on this website is to involve staff, patients and members of the public at every step of the way

Each partner involved in Tower Hamlets Together already has well established ways of doing this which we will build upon. However, we have also developed some dedicated methods specifically for the work of Tower Hamlets Together.

At the heart of this sits our stakeholder council which comprises members from a range of different groups and organisations, each of which represents people with different types of needs. Although still in the early stages of development, the stakeholder council will provide invaluable input and challenge to the Tower Hamlets Together Board which will contribute toward decisions about the way care is provided.

We are also in the process of establishing a community research network. This will involve recruiting a number of community volunteers who will build relationships with service users (often those whose views are seldom heard) and act as a feedback loop between these service users, the stakeholder council and the Tower Hamlets Together Board.

This way we can ensure that the views of people who have first-hand experience of using health and care services are used to inform any changes we make.

In addition to these we will use a variety of approaches such as surveys, focus groups and events to obtain views on specific issues. All communication and involvement activities are coordinated by a working group which includes members from all partners and other patient representative and community forums.
