Health and care organisations in Richmond upon Thames are working more closely together to make services better connected and more joined up.
The NHS, Council, voluntary sector and Healthwatch have come together to look at what’s important for health and care in Richmond, what the challenges are and how if different organisations work more closely together we can make a difference. Our aspiration for the people of Richmond is that they start well, live well and age well.
The priority areas for improvement which the programme has identified are:
Improve support for unpaid carers:
In November 2018 we held an event which brought together health and care frontline staff, local people and representatives from lots of different community organisations to talk about what’s important for health and care in Richmond.
People living and working in Richmond are invited to give their feedback on the draft Richmond Health and Care Plan for 2019-21. The plan has been developed by NHS organisations, Richmond Council and voluntary organisations in the borough who have worked together to review the local community’s health and care needs for the future. It also follows an extensive period of engagement with local people and health and care staff.
