As we continue to take the first steps in refreshing our clinical strategy, it is crucial that our communities have their say on what our hospitals look like now and in the future.
To help us understand how patients and residents access their care, we recently held an online survey and we would like to thank everyone who took the time to complete it.
The next phase of our engagement will be to host three virtual public listening events, to ensure residents can find out about our plans, as well as have their say on how we deliver sustainable services to meet the needs of our communities.
The valuable feedback we receive will feed into the refresh of our clinical strategy, which we worked on prior to the pandemic but paused the final stage as we focused on Covid-19.
The pandemic has changed all of our lives and it’s important that this is reflected in our draft clinical strategy. Our virtual events will be a great opportunity to look at how our services may operate in the future, while capturing the lessons learnt throughout the pandemic.
We will be hosting one virtual event per borough, across Barking and Dagenham, Havering and Redbridge. Please register your interest and purchase a ticket to these free events by clicking on the borough where you live below.
- Monday 18 October, 6-8pm: Barking and Dagenham

- Thursday 21 October, 6-8pm: Redbridge
Dr Oluremi Odejinmi, Director for Equality, Diversity and Inclusion and Clinical Director of Strategy, said: “It’s really important we get our clinical strategy right, to ensure it meets the needs of our diverse communities. Covid-19 has changed the way people access their care and we want to make sure residents’ have the chance to tell us what services should look like from both care and patient experience perspectives.
“Our virtual public listening events are one of the ways we are engaging and encouraging feedback from residents; and our executive and clinical leaders are excited to hear your views. Our clinical strategy is for you, so please do register for these events so you can have your say.”
