Making a Referral

WHFS (Women's Health & Family Services) has been working in east London since 1981 and is funded, amongst others, by NHS Tower Hamlets CCG, Barts Health NHS Trust, NHS Newham CCG and the London Borough of Tower Hamlets.  Our highly effective model of recruiting and training local people to deliver services has given us valuable insights into the needs of local communities and the most effective ways to tackle health inequalities.
