About The Improving Healthcare Together 2020-2030 Programme
Improving Healthcare Together 2020-2030 is led by NHS Surrey Downs, Sutton and Merton clinical commissioning groups (CCGs) – the organisations responsible for making decisions about how healthcare services should be provided in the local area.
We have started to explore the ways we can address local health challenges, and make sure NHS services are sustainable and fit for the future.
Three Big Challenges Facing the NHS in Our Area
Working together, we have identified three big challenges requiring attention which are:
- Improving the clinical quality of services
- Modernising buildings and care settings
- Achieving financial sustainability
These three challenges mean we need change and new ideas. If we do not tackle them, they risk affecting the quality of care, patient experience and potentially patient outcomes.
By finding new and innovative ways to solve these problems, we have the opportunity to make sure quality healthcare is a reality for patients both now, and in the future.
We are working with local communities, patients and clinicians to build on work which has already been done to identify the challenges.
