70 Years of the NHS NHS Kingston

Our partners

The NHS, local councils and the voluntary sector in south west London are working together as the South West Health and Care Partnership to deliver better care for local people. Organisations providing health care in six London boroughs are working together as four local partnerships to improve health services in Croydon, Sutton, Kingston and Richmond and Merton and Wandsworth.

Since the publication of the south west London sustainability and transformation plan (STP) in November 2016, we have continued to work together across south west London to engage with our stakeholders and local people.

Following a year of engagement with stakeholders and local people, we have listened and put your ideas into action. A draft refreshed strategy document was published in November 2017. The document focuses on partnership, prevention and keeping people well, recognising the greatest influences on our health and wellbeing are factors such as education, employment, housing, health habits in our communities and social connections which are best approached locally at borough level.

Combined with further engagement in 2018, a local health and care plan for Kingston will be published in 2019. This will focus on how we can work in partnership to meet the local challenges we have set out in the discussion document and provide the best care for people with complex needs. We will continue to work together with local people, community organisations and our partners to put these plans into action in the months and year to come.
