The national health service local improvement finance trusts (LIFTs) are mainly designed to support primary care trusts and local authorities to develop their primary health and community care services. Therefore, no new services and buildings have been provided, or are planned, for Barking, Havering and Redbridge NHS Trust through the NHS LIFT established in its area.

However, Redbridge and Waltham Forest LIFT has delivered £15 million of investment to deliver three new one stop primary care health centres. Barking and Havering LIFT has also delivered £66.5 million investment to deliver eight new facilities open to patients with two more under construction.
