In November 2018 an event was held which brought together health and care frontline staff, local people and representatives from lots of different community organisations to talk about what’s important for health and care in Wandsworth.
We talked about the kinds of things which no single organisation can achieve alone – like combating childhood obesity and supporting people with diabetes. Discussions were centred on whether we are focusing on the right areas for Wandsworth, and how to ensure the action we take has maximum impact for local people.
There was great energy and fresh ideas in the room. It was clear that people were passionate about health and care in our borough and wanted to support us.
We used the ideas generated during the event to develop a Wandsworth Health and Care Plan discussion document
We also looked at similar priorities around prevention and early intervention that were published in the NHS long-term plan.
