Welcome to the BHR Partnership website. This partnership brings together health and social care organisations across Barking and Dagenham, Havering and Redbridge, who are working to improve the quality of care, with better outcomes for our patients and public.
Getting help and treatment from a GP when you need it is something we are working hard to make simple and convenient. GPs across our area have begun to make this happen by fitting more around people’s busy lives.
The Community Treatment Team (CTT) is a team of doctors, nurses, physiotherapists, social workers and others who together care for people at home so that they don’t need to go into hospital.
Our hospitals, GPs and community services are working hard together to help ease pressure on our A&Es by ensuring people get the right care in the right place. More than nine out of ten people are now being seen in A&E within four hours.
Most people coming into A&E are older, frail patients. Our new Frail Older Persons Advisory and Liaison service has geriatricians, nurses and therapists, working together to quickly assess these patients in A&E.
We used to have five different teams in our hospitals working to get people home once they were well enough. Together, we now have a single, Joint Assessment and Discharge Service (JAD) doing the job and doing it better.
Nothing is more important than allowing people to spend their final days where they wish – usually at home with family and loved ones. Our new approach focuses on the needs and wishes of the dying person and those closest to them.
