Service Update

All services are now fully operational following the pandemic.  Some services are still offering virtual appointments where we have found for this to work well for our patients, parents/carers, however, most services have reverted back to face to face appointments.  ELFT ask for you to continue to wear a mask when visiting our sites to ensure the safety of our patients and staff.

Please see individual service information using the 'Our Services' tab.  Here, you will also find relevant contact information.  You can also contact each service directly via the 'Contact Us' tab.

You may also wish to visit Newham Talking Therapies for therapeutic support post pandemic and recognising the current cost of living crisis.  Click here to be redirected to their webpage.

Urgent Public Health Message and Alert​ Group

Group A Strep in children - see the DOWNLOAD section for NTPN Scarlet Fever advice. 

There are current concerns about more children being unwell with Group A Streptococcus, a bacterial infection that causes Scarlet Fever, bacterial tonsillitis and sepsis, and the media have been reporting on the higher number of child deaths from invasive Group A Strep in recent months. 

Here are key information links for parents and carers:

Scarlet Fever is much more common in children than in adults and it is important that children with Scarlet Fever are seen by their GP so that they can be started on antibiotics.
