North West London health and care strategy published
North West London have now published a first draft of our health and care strategy for North West London. The strategy looks to set out plans for services across our eight boroughs.
- that in some areas and communities in NW London people have poorer health than in others.
- that the conditions in which we are born, grow, live, work and age can impact our health and wellbeing.
- the waiting times and access for some services and specialist doctors are too long and difficult to get to.
- some conditions, including cancers, are being diagnosed too late.
North West London NHS have started a plan, but need your views to get it right. This is an early draft, shared in the spirit of transparency for comment and feedback. It takes account of the work of all our programmes, which is informed by the feedback we have received across a range of areas from the public. This strategy is expected to change before we publish a final draft later in summer. In particular, we are continuing to work with and across our local authorities, which together with feedback from local residents and health and care staff, will help shape the final draft.
As well as the draft strategy, we have published a summary document to give an overview of our plans in each area. Please do have a read and complete our survey. Not only will you be helping to shape the future of health and care in NW London but you could win a £100 voucher!
