Improve equity in health and care service provision for all

Our plan to address this step:
  • Reduce system variation across and between providers
  • Support for, and evaluation of, the primary care five year network contract
  • Use equity audits and quality improvement processes to highlight progress and identify gaps and unwarranted variation; whether related to protected characteristics or other equity issues e.g. no recourse to public funds
  • Development approaches with Primary Care Networks, community neighbourhoods and patients
Tracking progress:
  • Reduction in variation in primary outcomes
  • Reduction in variation in access/completion
Who is involved:
  • All Health and Wellbeing Board partners
  • NHS England commissioned services

Now is the time to act. Together we can make Newham a healthier borough.


Newham changemaker

Muhammad has worked in Newham as a GP for 12 years. He has recently qualifed as a GP trainer. As well as his role as Co-Chair of the Newham Health

and Wellbeing Board, he is also involved in patient care.

“As a GP in Newham part of my role is to treat ill health. However, a big part is also to identify opportunities where my colleagues and I in primary care can encourage good health, whether it’s providing patients with the right access to information or encouraging them to get involved in healthy activities. By looking at health in this

way, my role begins to have many dimensions and the impact I can have on improving the community’s health significantly increases.”

– Dr Muhammad Naqvi, Chair of Newham Clinical Commissioning Group and GP
