Working Together

Our Local Care Partnership is called Healthier Greenwich Alliance, which formally reports into the Health & Wellbeing Board. It brings together Greenwich partners in health and social care including:

  • NHS South East London CCG – Greenwich
  • Royal Borough of Greenwich – Public Health, Adults, Children & Young People
  • Oxleas NHS Foundation Trust – Community Services and Mental Health provider
  • Greenwich Health – GP Federation
  • Primary Care Network Clinical Directors
  • Healthwatch Greenwich
  • Lewisham and Greenwich NHS Trust
  • METRO GAVS – voluntary sector

We have agreed the following priorities.

Working together in a joined-up way means we can coordinate services better. This will help residents to get the help they need when they need it.

We aim to:

  • Improve health and care services which meet local needs.
  • Empower people to take better care of their own health and reduce their dependency on services.
  • Provide support from health and care professionals who act as one team and work for organisations that behave as one system.
  • Improve performance of local services.
  • Reduce duplication. Enable more people to be cared for in the community.

Working with you to shape how Greenwich’s health and care services recover

Covid-19 has affected nearly every aspect of our daily lives. Never before have our health and care services faced such an overwhelming challenge, or had to respond or adapt so quickly. Health and care services in Greenwich are working together through the Healthier Greenwich Alliance and have developed a recovery and reset plan which outlines how, over the next year, we plan to work with local people to learn from Covid-19 and accelerate some of the positive changes put in place. Summary of the recovery and reset plan.

The recovery and reset plan was informed by engagement activities delivered between July and September 2020. Healthier Greenwich Alliance partners have been engaging widely to collate residents’ views on the key priorities of the plan. We worked together across all our partners and community organisations to maximise our reach. You can read the report that was presented at the Health and Wellbeing Board meeting on 8 October 2020.

We believe that this plan will only be successful if it reflects the experiences, priorities and ideas of all communities in Greenwich, working together to respond to the challenges ahead.

Healthier Greenwich Alliance and its members are keen for local residents to get involved in developing the implementation of the plan over the coming months. If you would like to get involved please get in touch with our Communications and Engagement team by emailing Iuliana Dinu: iuliana.dinu@nhs.net or calling 0203 0499042.
