Redbridge

With many independent shops and restaurants, as well as frequent transport links to London & Essex, Redbridge is an area where the city meets suburbia.

Situated in the Eastern edge of London, Redbridge is incredibly diverse with over 50 nationalities and over 100 languages spoken throughout the area, Redbridge has something to offer everyone.

As one of London’s greenest Boroughs, there are more than 35 parks, playgrounds, and other open spaces to enjoy. Six of these parks have attained the prestigious Green Flag award.

We invest a lot in equality and diversity making sure the workforce is as representative as the patients we look after this gives me a sense of belonging and is one of the reasons I love being at NELFT so much.
