Over two hundred voluntary and community groups in Redbridge work to improve the health of their service users and members.
RedbridgeCVS's Health Partnerships Officer works to enhance relationships between those groups and the NHS in the borough.
- Build effective partnerships between the voluntary sector and local NHS commissioners and providers
- Ensure local NHS commissioners and providers are informed about local services delivered by voluntary groups
- Ensure local NHS commissioners can use voluntary groups to gather information about the needs of local people, and that voluntary groups are effectively used to disseminate key information from the NHS to local communities.
- Support voluntary and community groups to engage positively with local NHS commissioning procedures
