Launching the ‘Next Steps to the Strategic Commissioning Framework – a vision for strengthening general practice’
Healthy London Partnership has published ‘Next Steps to the Strategic Commissioning Framework, a vision for strengthening general practice collaboration’ across London.
Developed in partnership with London CCGs, Londonwide Local Medical Committees and overseen by the Primary Care Clinical Cabinet, the framework provides guidance and resources to support practices to develop high quality larger-scale general practice collaboration in London.
It shares flexible models for developing ways of working together that can be adapted to deliver primary care transformation.
Dr Jonty Heaversedge, Medical Director for Primary Care at NHS England (London region) shares his vision for how general practice organisations can work collaboratively to achieve greater access to services for patients.
New resource for primary care providers caring for children & young people
Healthy London Partnership’s newly published primary care toolkit is for primary and community care providers involved in caring for children and young people.
The toolkit features pathways for the top paediatric conditions, e-learning modules, information on group consultations, examples of closer working with pharmacy, communications resources, mental health and wellbeing information and more.
Developed in partnership with London’s clinical leads for children and young people, our thanks go out to everyone who contributed the work they’ve been doing to improve children and young people’s primary care.
HLP responds to the Mayor’s TfL junk food advert ban
Jemma Gilbert, director of transformation and prevention lead at Healthy London Partnership, has responded to the Mayor of London’s plans to restrict the advertising of unhealthy food and drink on the London transport network from February 2019.
Sleepio and Good Thinking integration celebrated as a pioneering NHS innovation
The integration of the digital Cognitive Behavioural Therapy program, Sleepio, into the Good Thinking London digital wellbeing service, has been celebrated alongside some of England’s most pioneering NHS innovations.
The NHS Innovation Accelerator and Bayswater Institute report Understanding how and why the NHS adopts innovation was launched by the Secretary of State for Health and Social Care, Matt Hancock MP, to inform understanding of the adoption and enabling factors that support uptake and embedding of these healthcare solutions within the NHS.
Mental illness can affect anyone, including ex-members of the Armed Forces.
You may have patients within your practice who have served in the Armed Forces and could be suffering with mental health issues. Veterans often have unique experiences and needs and it’s important to recognise this and refer them to suitable support.
We want to make you aware that within the NHS there are dedicated mental health services for veterans. The NHS Veterans’ Mental Health Transition, Intervention and Liaison Service (TILS) can be accessed by contacting the service directly or through a GP referral. Those with complex needs may be referred on to the NHS Veterans’ Mental Health Complex Treatment Service (CTS). Londoners can access the TILS service by calling 020 3317 6818 or emailing email@example.com.
We’d appreciate your help in spreading awareness of these resources to patients.

Following the success of our multi-agency Mental Health Act training sessions that took place at each Mental Health Trust in 2017/18, we are offering further bespoke training in Spring 2019 to London’s frontline ED staff.
