We are informed by NHS England that the 8am-8pm walk in service is to be disaggregated from the service for registered patients at the Barkantine Health Centre. This is because the commissioning of the walk in service became the responsibility of the clinical commissioning groups (CCGs) in April 2013.
We are assured that there will be an extensive engagement process undertaken with patients and key stakeholders. Tower Hamlets CCG will be responsible for the process and future decisions concerning the location and design of walk-in services.
The expectation is that the disaggregation of the contract should take place at the first available opportunity i.e. at the point a contract has a break clause.
