The Improving Healthcare Together 2020-2030 programme will see organisations across our local health and care services work with our communities and patients in Surrey Downs, Sutton and Merton to address a series of long-standing challenges and improve healthcare sustainably for the future.
The programme is led by experienced GPs from NHS Surrey Downs, Sutton and Merton clinical commissioning groups (CCGs) and is seeking feedback and input from the people who use our services.
As clinical commissioning groups, we are considering ways to address the challenges our local healthcare system faces. Looking at the long-term healthcare needs of our population, we have identified four key local aims for delivering care in the future. These are:
- Improving the health of our populations
- Delivering care as close to patients’ homes as possible
- Ensuring high standards of healthcare across all our providers
- Maintaining the provision of major acute services within our combined geographies
