70 Years of the NHS NHS Kingston

Our health and care plan

The Kingston Health and Care Plan describes our vision, priorities and actions to meet the health and care needs of local people and deliver improvements in their health and wellbeing.

This two year plan focuses on actions which no single organisation can achieve alone: where health, social care and the voluntary sector working together has maximum impact. This plan should be read in the context of our other local health and care strategies.

This plan has been developed in partnership with local people, voluntary community groups, health and care partners.

Our aspiration for the people of Kingston is that they start well, live well and age well. The priority areas for improvement which the programme has identified are:

Start Well 

  • Maximise the mental wellbeing and resilience of our children and young people
  • Improve the health of children and young people with a focus on tackling childhood obesity
  • Give children and young people with special educational needs and disabilities opportunities to flourish and be independent
