Our Vision and Purpose

Our Vision: To work together to improve the health and wellbeing of the people of Tower Hamlets.

Our Mission

To improve the health and wellbeing of people who live in Tower Hamlets and to improve the quality of the care services we provide, ensuring that we spend the money we have available, wisely. Our services will be person-centred, co-ordinated and will make a real and positive difference to people’s lives.

Our Values

  1. We are collaborative
  2. We are compassionate
  3. We are inclusive
  4. We are accountable

Our Purpose

We will be responsible (via the Tower Hamlets Together Board) for furthering the strategic development of health and social care with key partners, including the voluntary and community services sector, education, communities and with the scope to involve other key system partners. We are responsible for building effective relationships across the system.

We will have a leading role in promoting the health of the population of the borough and the oversight of health and social care integration, including service redesign, transformation and innovation. Integration is a key local priority. We will identify opportunities to improve outcomes and reduce costs, duplication and implement joint working to address this. The ethos of partnership working will underpin the programme of work, recognising that, on occasions, difficult decisions may be required by partners in order to deliver improvements for the Tower Hamlets population. We will call to account areas of system-wide failure and highlight success at local and strategic level.

Our Vanguard Journey: Tower Hamlets Together


The Tower Hamlets population has a much lower healthy life expectancy than the national average and many health challenges. This video shows how the Tower Hamlets Together Vanguard helped to transform the way we deliver care to benefit patients through working together across health and social care.
