Healthy London Partnership update – July 2016

We are delighted to share our latest highlights as we move into the second year of Healthy London Partnership.

From April to June, we were in a unique position to support the development of London’s sustainability and transformation plans (STP). Our teams have been working with local STP planning leads and Directors of Public Health across London to share best practice; baseline data and benchmarking; and financial and workforce modelling, as well as hands-on practical support locally to develop content, hold workshops to share learning and help local teams develop plans.

Healthy London Partnership was set up to provide ongoing support for transformation from strategy through to delivery, ensuring alignment across the full commissioning and delivery chain. Part of this means delivering activities that are common across all CCGs, where it would be beneficial to have a consistent approach, such as developing outcome measures, standards or benchmarking. A once-for-London approach has the potential to minimise duplication and streamline quality improvement. As detailed STPs progress, we will continue supporting local leads to ensure the work we are doing supports their delivery and maximises local efforts to improve health and care.

The scale of transformation that we are aiming for across London needs strong commitment, investment and a clear purpose to vastly improve the health of our city. Our progress depends on the input of many leaders, experts and clinicians and we would like to thank everyone involved in Healthy London Partnership for their continued enthusiasm and efforts to make positive changes to health in the capita.
