This model is of a pioneering new health centre in one of London’s most poverty-stricken areas, Bromley-by-Bow. Here, conventional medical treatments are supplied as part of an integrated series of services and facilities, including a nursery, church, cafes and activity centres. Treatment for illnesses and diseases may include singing lessons or exercise instead of drugs. The approach is holistic – looking at the whole person rather than just the signs of illness. The model was made as a focus for discussion with the local community. The health centre was built in 1997 and still thrives today.
