The South West London Health and Care Partnership is comprised of the organisations providing health and care in the six south west London boroughs.

We are working together in four local partnerships, acting as one team to keep people healthy and well in Croydon, Sutton, Kingston & Richmond, and Merton & Wandsworth.

Following a year of engaging with our stakeholders and local people since the publication of the South West London STP in November 2016, we have listened, taken into account that feedback and are currently refreshing our strategy for health and care in South West London.

On 30th November 2017 we published our draft refreshed strategy document: The South West London Health and Care Partnership: One year on or 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 wellbeing are factors such as education, employment, housing, healthy habits in our communities and social connections.

This is not a final document and we will continue to work together in partnership with the local NHS, local authorities, the voluntary sector and Healthwatch to develop “local health and care plans” in each area. These plans will provide clear and detailed actions to address the local challenges we have set out in the discussion document. The local plans will be published in June 2018.
