The South West London Health and Care Partnership
The NHS, local councils and the voluntary sector in south west London have strengthened their commitment to working together to deliver better care for local people as the South West London Health and Care Partnership.
A local approach works best, and organisations providing health and care in six London boroughs have come together as four local partnerships, acting as one team to keep people healthy and well in Croydon, Sutton, Kingston & Richmond, and Merton & Wandsworth.
On 30th November 2017 we published our draft refreshed strategy document: The South West London Health and Care Partnership: One year on for discussion with local organisations and stakeholders. This discussion document reflects the feedback we have received over the last year, and we have strengthened our focus on partnership, prevention and keeping people well – the greatest influences on our health and well-being are factors such as education, employment, housing, healthy habits in our communities and social connections.
Since November 2017 local partnerships have been reviewing their borough population’s health needs, current services, listening to local people, to identify and understand shared health and care priorities to work together to support people in each borough to start well, live well and age well.
Each local partnership have hosted a Health and Care event in their borough to engage on their Local Health and Care Plan. Each event brought together around 150 people including partners, stakeholders, front-line staff and the local community to help us focus on the actions we are going to take within each boroughs local Health and Care plan.
The Health and Care events are part of a bigger piece of continuous engagement on local health and care priorities – as we are all already talking and will continue talking to key people about working together.
Local health and care plans for each of our boroughs will be published in March 2019. These plans will focus on how we can work in partnership to meet the challenges we have set out in the discussion document, and provide the best care for people with complex needs. We will continue to work together with local people, community organisations and our partners to put these plans into action in the months and years to come.
Health and Care plan events were held in each borough on the following dates:
- Richmond 19th November
- Croydon 20th November
- Merton 21st November
