Wandsworth: our plans

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.

Visit South West London Health and Care Partnership to read more about the plan and its development.

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.

The Learning Disability Mortality Review (LeDeR) Programme is delivered by the University of Bristol. It is commissioned by the Healthcare Quality Improvement Partnership (HQIP) on behalf of NHS England.  Work on the LeDeR programme commenced in June 2015 for an initial three year period.

A key part of the LeDeR programme is to support local areas to review the deaths of people with Learning Disabilities (deaths include from age 4 and above) , helping to promote and implement the new review process, and providing support to local areas to take forward the lessons learned in the reviews in order to make improvements to service provision.  The LeDeR Programme also collate and share anonymised information about the deaths of people with learning disabilities so that common themes, learning points and recommendations can be identified and taken forward into policy and practice improvements.

Further information can be found in the LeDeR Annual Report.
