NHS South West London CCG is responsible for planning, commissioning and buying health services for people living in the borough of Wandsworth.
It’s our job to make sure that you benefit from convenient and high quality healthcare services whenever you need them – whether this is advice from a pharmacist or GP, a procedure in hospital, help at home through local community services, or if you need support with your mental health.
Our work in Wandsworth is clinically led by local doctors and other experienced health professionals, and our team includes members from every GP practice in the borough.
We work in partnership with Wandsworth Council, patient groups, voluntary organisations and other NHS bodies to improve the health and wellbeing of everyone in the area and to help make Wandsworth a great place to live and work.
There have been a lot of changes put in place to Keep You Safe when you visit St George’s Hospital, your GP practice, or seek mental health help in Wandsworth. Watch this short video to see what’s changed, what’s different and how we are trying to #KeepYouSafeSWL
Wandsworth is London’s largest inner-city borough and has a significantly young demographic, with the highest proportion of the population (31%) aged between 30 and 44 of any council in the country. Many people who live in the borough are affluent, well educated, healthy and in work. However, this is not the case for everyone.
Nearly 30% of children come from income-deprived households, and a quarter of over-60s are in receipt of pension credits. Life expectancy in deprived areas of the borough is significantly lower than the most affluent areas: 8.9 years lower for men and 6.8 years lower for women.
The Joint Strategic Needs Assessment describes the current and future health and wellbeing needs of people living in the borough. It is used to identify where the Council, the NHS and the voluntary sector need to focus their efforts to improve the health and wellbeing of the community.
We work on behalf of local people, so we want to hear what you have to say about health services in your area. We use your feedback to help make important decisions about local healthcare and make changes in response to your feedback. We aim to talk with as many residents as we can and there are lots of ways to get involved.
You can complete our general feedback form at any time if you have something to say about your local NHS.
