Harlow Health Centres Trust (HHCT) aim is to provide the best possible primary health care facilities for the people of Harlow. Since 1994 the Trust has embarked on a programme of redeveloping its existing buildings providing new state of the art health facilities for Harlow, including bespoke artwork. In line with the Trust’s charitable purposes the Trust also distributes approximately £130,000 each year in grants to support community health and wellbeing. HHCT is now the biggest donor of community grants in Harlow.

Harlow Health Centres Trust is responsible for the fabric and facilities of Florence Nightingale, Keats House, Addison House, Nuffield House, Sydenham House, and Lister House.

The Trust AGM will agree constitutional matters and receive the annual accounts. The AGM will also receive reports on the finances of HHCT, future direction and capital needed to refurbish our centres, the uncertain future of PAH and the impact on our Primary Care Facilities, the future of Sydenham House, the HHCT refreshed strategy, and grants and donations achievements. This Trust AGM will also see the launch of the Stan Newens Bursary, a bursary to support members of the local community accessing Higher Education studies in health and wellbeing.

The Trust AGM will also receive a presentation from one of HHCT’s successful grant receivers.

The AGM is open to all members of the public who will have the opportunity to scrutinise and question the work of HHCT.

Bill Rammell, the newly elected Chair of HHCT, said, “Harlow Health Centres Trust is a unique and important charitable Trust which manages our local Primary Care facilities, and invests significant grants to support community health and wellbeing. The AGM is an opportunity for all members of the public to hear in detail about the Trust and scrutinise and question our work.”

We just need GPs to do the job we are all paying for and actually see patients , they have been allowed too long to miss diagnosed people over the phone.

I agree. Perhaps they could explain what the GP's actually do now because the receptionist/navigators only book patients in with the Advanced Nurse Practitioner's or the other nurses. I appreciate these people are qualified in their own right but GP's are general practitioner's so can deal with anything. That's what they're being paid to do.

Have a booking system that actually allows you to book an appointment.

Yes because our surgery states you can book online but you can't!

Return decision making control of the NHS back to clinicians/doctors/matrons rather than letting accountants and civil servants with little or no medical knowledge or training continue to destroy what should be our jewel in the crown.

I don't want bespoke artwork - just a face to face appointment with a GP!

People who blame GP's all the time please know that GP's like all the NHS has had funding cut by the tories. They want to employ more GPs but they just can't afford them. I wouldn't be shocked if we get striking GPs soon.

You just can't make appointment's . There not bothered about killing us off . Who ever is uncharged of this stupid system. A lot of Lister House people are leaving . God help us all .

How about if a patient makes a complaint to the Manager in writing said Manager actually acknowledges the complaint , look into the complaint instead of saying Oh if your not happy complain to the Ombudsman!!

I think HHCT are a charity that owns the buildings. They don’t provide the service themselves.
