Welcome to Healthy London Partnership’s latest update. It has been a very exciting and productive quarter for health across the capital. In October, we co-hosted the One Year On anniversary event of Lord Darzi’s London Health Commission highlighting the progress London Health Board partners (Greater London Authority, London Councils, London CCGs, NHS England London and Public Health England) are making towards helping our capital become the healthiest city in the world. Crucially the event was an opportunity to focus on the work we have yet to do before reaching our goal.
We know there is still much progress to be made but a major positive step happened in December when The London Health and Care Collaboration Agreement was signed and endorsed by Government. The approach that London partners proposed of developing and testing different elements of health and care devolution across the capital has given us clear direction for making the improvements necessary to achieve positive change.
Healthy London Partnership programmes have been continuing to progress work at a pan-London level to support and enhance local transformation. We would like to thank all stakeholders who have committed their time and expertise to the partnership through events, board membership, working groups, meetings and feedback. This contribution has been invaluable in progressing the work of the programmes to deliver change.
