The Island Health Centre
The Trust owns the Island Health Centre on the Isle of Dogs in Tower Hamlets which is home to a number of health care professionals who provide health related services to residents of the local community. The Trust continues to provide grants on an annual basis to the GPs and invests in improvements to the building and services; most recently IHT has upgraded the patients’ toilets on the ground floor so they are now suitable for people of Muslim faith and those with disabilities.
IHT also continues to grant funds to the GPs to support the provision of complimentary therapies offered by the practice team to its patients. Sessions are offered to patients through GP referrals, and in 2017 the Trust funded over 350 sessions of free osteopathy, massage and acupuncture.
