Community health services

The Barts Health Community Health Services provide care for residents living in Tower Hamlets. We deliver services to 81 premises around Tower Hamlets including GP surgeries, community health centres, clinics, in hospital and to patients in their homes.

Patients who are seen at home would be expected to attend a doctor’s surgery or other community location prior to their care starting. Most services operate Monday to Friday 9am to 5pm, with the exception of the GP Out of Hours Service and the Community Health Teams (see individual services for opening times).
