The NHS Long Term Plan

In response to the NHS Long Term Plan (January 2019), we’re working to improve and integrate local NHS services in Croydon, Kingston, Merton, Richmond, Sutton and Wandsworth.

By working together, we can better respond to the different needs of our local populations at neighbourhood level; work in even greater partnership with our local authorities in each borough; and commission services for patient pathways that go across the entire south west London system.

However, much of what we do will continue to be at a borough level and our relationships with local authorities, voluntary sector organisations, and other partners will be as important as ever.

Our aim is to be better able to plan services at the right population level, enhance the joining up of health and social care, and reduce management costs so that more money can go into our GP surgeries and community services and our hospitals.
