In Lambeth and Southwark we are working to put patients truly at the centre of the care they receive. On 25 January 2019 at the Kia Oval, over 50 health, social care and voluntary community sector organisation professionals from across the borough came together to celebrate the success of the Coordinated Care Multidisciplinary Training Programme.
A workshop has taken place to explore a neighbourhood-based model for health and wellbeing in Lambeth.
The event at Lambeth Town Hall is part of work taking place to evolve Lambeth’s Local Care Networks into neighbourhood-based collectives joining-up services from statutory agencies, the community and voluntary sectors by place.
Lambeth public health has launched a new health and wellbeing web page called ‘Your health’. This digital resource helps people find health and wellbeing services in their local community.
To develop this tool, staff mapped services offered by community and voluntary sector bodies, as well as those provided by the council, to create an up-to-date and helpful directory.
Faced with increasing demand, budgets that don’t always keep pace and reports that services didn’t feel joined up, Lambeth council and the Clinical Commissioning Group (who organise and buy services on behalf of the population) took the innovative step of joining forces to improve things.
