Healthy ageing innovation centre

The UK centre of excellence for improving population health alongside regeneration

Care City presents a unique opportunity to improve population health alongside regeneration through creating new relationships with our community, our system, innovators and experts.

Care City was jointly founded by NELFT and the London Borough of Barking and Dagenham in October 2013. Amidst a challenged health economy, there was alignment across the health and social care system that we needed to work together to better support our population.

Care City will be a ground breaking research, education and innovation site based in Barking, and serving north east London and the surrounding areas.
