Administrative/Biographical history:

Newham Health District existed from 1974 to 1981, as one of three districts within the City and East London Area Health Authority (Teaching). During this period the development of Newham General Hospital was planned and a number of joint consultative appointments made, mostly with the London Hospital Medical College.

Newham District Health Authority was established in 1981. Until the National Health Service reorganisation in 1991 the Authority was responsible for running hospital and other health services in Newham. In 1991 the District became the purchasing authority for health services for the population for Newham, with provider services contracted principally with Newham Healthcare, based at Newham General Hospital. In 1993 Newham District Health Authority merged with City and Hackney District Health Authority and Tower Hamlets District Health Authority to form the East London and City Health Authority.
