Waltham Forest faces a number of major challenges over the next few years – from more people moving to the borough to the number of residents with long term health conditions. To cope with these challenges, NHS Waltham Forest Clinical Commissioning Group (WFCCG) is working with our local residents, representative organisations and neighbouring boroughs in East London to identify how we can provide better access to a wider range of health services within local communities by, amongst other things, making better use of our existing NHS and GP practice buildings. 

WFCCG has now produced an estates strategy, which seeks to identify the right property solutions and locations for Waltham Forest and how these solutions may work in our three distinct areas (or localities) of Leyton/Leytonstone, Walthamstow and Chingford. 

The strategy calls for more services to be provided in the community, which means that we need to examine how services can be reconfigured and located to best support this change. This involves looking at the infrastructure, information technology and workforce that we will need to support new models of care, working out what this means for our current estate and identifying solutions that work better for everyone involved.
