To celebrate its 10-year anniversary the award-winning Tower Hamlets Open Doors service, which has trained and supported hundreds of nurses and health care assistants in the borough over the last decade, invited their alumni back for a special celebratory tea party in recognition of their achievements.
Open Doors is responsible for recruiting more than 58 Practice Nurses into Tower Hamlets. At least 50% of all the staff employed by GP practices in Tower Hamlets have been trained at some point by the Open Doors team.
Following a successful procurement process, Tower Hamlets GP Care Group is delighted to have been awarded the contract to provide the borough’s School Nursing Service.
The service provides essential specialist nursing care, advice and support to school-age children and young people.
This development offers an exciting opportunity to grow and fully integrate 0-19 service provision in Tower Hamlets, cementing our aims of better joint working and improving outcomes for local children and young people.
We look forward to welcoming our new colleagues who will be joining us from Compass, the previous provider, and are working hard to ensure there is a smooth and seamless transition for users of the service and staff.
