About Us

On 1 April 2013, NHS Newham Clinical Commissioning Group took over responsibility for planning and commissioning a range of health services, including Secondary Care, Community and Mental Health Services for Newham residents and visitors to the Borough. Our role is to work in partnership with our community and local health stakeholders to understand local health needs in order to deliver high quality services that meet the needs of our local population. 

Our prospectus sets out who we are, our values and aims, how your money is spent and how you can stay involved. Most importantly, it sets out how we plan to work together with our patients, providers and partners to address and reduce health inequalities, as we recognise these have a major impact on people's health.
