North West London health and care strategy published

23 May 2023

We have now published a first draft of our health and care strategy for North West London. The strategy is intended to set out our plans for healthcare services across our eight boroughs.

View the first draft of our health and care strategy for North West London.

We know:

  • 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.

We 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.

Alongside our draft strategy, we have published a summary document providing a simple overview of what we plan to do.

We will be talking to local residents, health and care staff, Healthwatch and the voluntary and community sectors during May and June to seek feedback, challenge and discussion on the strategy. We appreciate that the draft strategy is wide-ranging, and so to support engagement we have produced single page summaries for each programme’s strategic objectives. There will also be a North West London Residents Forum (open to all), where local people will be invited to discuss and comment on our plans. We would encourage local people to join this virtual meeting, which will be advertised in due course.

Please do complete our survey about the strategy. All comments will be considered as we develop the final draft.
