Our experience and success with recent collaborative and people based projects have shown that we can genuinely transform care for people when we focus on people’s strengths, on prevention and on getting it right first time

What do we want to achieve?

Our vision is to improve health and reduce health inequalities for people in Lambeth. To create the environment in which all this is possible we are coming together at every level to form Lambeth Together. We want Lambeth to be a place where:

1

Health and wellbeing is improving for all, and improving fastest for those with the poorest health and wellbeing

2

People are able to reach their full potential and feel good about themselves

3

Everyone feels valued and has choices about their health and wellbeing

4

People are safe from harm

A better future for all

We believe that Lambeth Together will bring benefits to everyone using or working within health, care and other services in the borough.
