The South West London Health and Care Partnership

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 four local partnerships, acting as one team to keep people healthy and well in Croydon, Sutton, Kingston & Richmond, and Merton & Wandsworth.

  • Diabetes
  • Cardiovascular disease
  • End of life care
  • Mental health
  • Outpatient transformation
  • Respiratory care

During the day, colleagues from our six local Health watches shared the experiences of local people who are living with these conditions, highlighting their personal stories, their experience of services, and suggestions for improvements, to allow us to understand even more about what matters most to them as someone affected by these conditions
