Patient Participation Group

We would like to know how we can improve our service to you and how you perceive our surgery and staff.

To help us with this, we are setting up a virtual patient representation group so that you can have your say. We will ask the members of this representative group some questions from time to time, such as what you think about our opening times or the quality of the care or service you received. We will contact you via email and keep our surveys succinct so it shouldn’t take too much of your time.

We aim to gather around a hundred patients from as broad a spectrum as possible to get a truly representative sample. We need young people, workers, retirees, people with long term conditions and people from non-British ethnic groups.

You can download the sign up form as a pdf document, print it out, complete it and return it to the practice.

Latest patient and stakeholder updates

Barking and Dagenham, Havering and Redbridge

9 November 2023

This week’s BHR stakeholder update will be our last edition for a while

This will be our last BHR Stakeholder update for a while as we look to refresh our stakeholder communications to communities and partners across north east London.

Whilst we take this break, we would like to thank you for your readership, for sharing our messages and for your continued and valued partnership. We will be back in touch shortly with all the latest updates from NHS North East London.

Make sure your child is protected from Measles

Measles cases are rising in London. Make sure your child is protected with an MMR (measles, mumps and rubella) vaccination. Check your child’s red book and contact your GP to book an appointment for any missed vaccinations.

Find out more information here: MMR and Polio catch-up vaccinations – NHS North East London (

Help to stop smoking

Quitting smoking can be hard on your own. Fortunately in north east London there are free stop smoking services available in each borough to help people to stop smoking.

North East London Cancer Alliance, in partnership with Via and Redbridge Quits Smoking, has produced a video with local people who have been regular smokers and who have used our local services to help them to quit smoking.

Watch it now to find out more about how support can help to stop smoking:

Foster for Redbridge

Gloria Samuel, Service Manager for Fostering and Children with Disabilities Services in Redbridge Council, previously fostered for 20 years. Many of the children she cared for had physical and learning disabilities.  Now retired from fostering, Gloria states “I don’t think potential foster carers realise just how much training and support is available when looking after children who happen to be disabled or have additional needs. There are many different care packages offered to support the child and foster carers fully and the training involved is outstanding”.

If you are considering fostering and would like to know more, please or call 020 8708 6068 or visit to book a place on an information session.
