How we commission services

It’s our job to identify how health services in Waltham Forest can best meet the needs of local people, both now and in the future. We then use the resources we are given by central government to commission these services and make sure they are safe, effective and help to reduce health inequalities.

To understand the areas where care needs to improve, we draw on the expert knowledge of our clinicians, the feedback we receive from our patients, and the Waltham Forest Joint Strategic Needs Assessment developed by Waltham Forest Council.

We are in the process of refreshing our Commissioning Strategic Plan, which sets out our vision for care in Waltham Forest. It explains what we will do locally to improve the health of local people, deliver high quality services, ensure value for money and tackle health inequalities by making sure everyone in Waltham Forest is treated fairly and have equal access to services.

It is focused on our key priorities, which are based on what’s needed the most locally. These include:
