London Well being and Care Partnership

London Health and Care Partnership

who we are

The London Health and Care Partnership includes the Greater London Authority (GLA), London Councils, NHS England and the Office for Health Improvement and Disparities (OHID).

The partnership is a network of stakeholders from across the health and care industry committed to delivering the London Vision. The aim of this vision is to make London the world’s healthiest global city and the best global city to deliver health and care services. Our work is also guided by the London Health Inequalities Strategy and the goals of the Government’s White Paper, Health and Social Care Integration: Joining up care for people, place and populations.

The challenge

One of the ways we aim to achieve this is by driving the drive for more connected, integrated work between health and care services in London to improve the health and well-being of the people who live and work in our city . Other challenges are:

  • attract, train and retain a workforce that supports service transformation;
  • a review of the health and care park in terms of how we use and develop it for the future;
  • Developing digital technology to improve the delivery of health and care services and take Londoners on this journey.

We have worked across London’s individual health and care organizations and systems to develop better integrated care, building on experience and learning both before and since the Covid-19 pandemic.

The London Vision

The London Vision is a partnership between key stakeholders responsible for the delivery of health and care services in our city. This contains:

  • NHS
  • Mayor of London
  • London councils
  • The Office for Health Improvement and Disparities and the Health Security Agency (formerly Public Health England)

We recognize that London, like many large cities, offers a wealth of opportunities for people to lead happy and healthy lives. However, it also brings with it health problems and challenges, including health inequalities.

Access to health and care services should not depend on who you are, be it your gender, ethnicity, age, sexual orientation, disability or location.

The London Vision aims to address these challenges through ten key priorities:

  • Reducing childhood obesity
  • Improving mental health and progress toward zero suicides
  • Improving tobacco control and reducing consumption
  • Improving the health of the homeless
  • Supporting Londoners with dementia to live well
  • Improving the emotional well-being of children and young Londoners
  • improvement of air quality
  • Reducing the prevalence and impact of violence
  • Improving services and prevention for HIV and other sexually transmitted infections (STIs)
  • Improving care and support and end of life
