Improving health and care services – an opportunity to get involved

Developing an integrated care system in north central London
 

The NHS Long Term Plan sets out a 10-year programme that aims to improve health and care for local people so that they can get the right care, in the right place, at the right time.

Over the last few years health and care organisations in north central London have been working closely together as a partnership. We are building on this sucess to become an Integrated Care System (ICS), a new model of providing joined-up health and care that involves even closer collaboration.

Integrated care systems will bring together primary and specialist care; physical and mental health services; and health and social care.

In the north central London ICS, local NHS organisations, councils and other groups, such as charities and community groups, will take collective responsibility for managing resources, delivering NHS standards, and improving the health and wellbeing of local people.

By working together in this way it means we can:

  • provide better, more joined-up care for residents
  • provide care that is tailored to individual needs
  • help people to live healthier lives for longer
  • help people to stay out of hospital when they don’t need to be there

We are continuing to speak with local residents about the best ways to arrange health and care services across north central London over the next five years.

There are a number of ways you can get involved in these discussions.
