The GP Care Group is delighted to be awarded a three-year contract, with an option to extend another two years, to provide the Healthy Child Programme for the London Borough of Waltham Forest. This comprises of the borough’s Health Visiting, School Nursing, and Family Nurse Partnership services. The GP Care Group has provided the same 0-19 age services in Tower Hamlets for several years. The contract will start from 1 July, and we are now preparing to transfer the services from the current service provider.
Our decision to tender for the Waltham Forest contract came from our desire to strengthen our 0-19 services by having a wider base. Working across two boroughs enables us to invest more in IT, recruitment, training, and peer support for staff, in order to continuously improve services for the communities in both boroughs.
