We work on behalf of patients and the public to deliver excellent health care services in Wandsworth and the whole of South West London. We’re trying to link local services together more effectively across health and social care in Wandsworth, putting you at the centre of your care.
Health and care organisations in Wandsworth are working more closely together to make services better connected and more joined up through the Wandsworth Transformation Group.
The NHS, council, voluntary sector and Healthwatch have come together to look at what’s important for health and care in Wandsworth, what the challenges are and how, if different organisations work more closely together, we can make a difference.
Our aspiration for the people of Wandsworth is that they start well, live well and age well.
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 local partnerships, acting as one team to keep people healthy and well in Croydon, Kingston, Merton, Richmond, Sutton and Wandsworth.
Each year we set out our priorities for the coming year and describe how we will improve the health of the communities we serve. As some of these priorities may lead to changes or developments that affect how some health providers need to work, we give providers six months’ notice of any changes.
We want Wandsworth to be a place where children and young people with special educational needs and disabilities (SEND) are everyone’s priority and feel like they belong in an inclusive community.
Working together under the SEND Joint Strategic Partnership Board, the local authority, South West London CCG and parents’ group, Positive Parents Action, have developed a strong vision to reflect our ambitions for all children and young people with SEND.
Their education, health and care needs will be identified early and met in a timely and efficient manner – and they will be supported to achieve the best possible outcomes which reflect their individual aspirations.
