Recently the Havering and Barking & Dagenham Clinical Commissioning Groups (CCG) contacted Jon Cruddas about their launch of a public consultation in Barking and Dagenham, Havering and Redbridge on ‘making intermediate care better’. Intermediate care is the specialised care that is provided to people in their own homes to prevent them from needing to go or stay longer in hospitals. These services can also be provided in residential homes and community rehab units.

GP’s in Barking and Dagenham and Havering, with the support of local MP Jon Cruddas, have successfully applied for a £5.6M grant to implement improved access to services and to further support complex care needs.   

This additional funding will help services look at how best to meet the needs of patients. As everyone knows, local health services are under real pressure, and GPs are determined to do their bit to help improve care for patients in the local community.

The award winning annual 'non contact' LBBD funded Summer Boxing Scheme is being run again this year - for 2 weeks. The dates for each of the 4 courses are age specific:
