Since 2012, the NHS in North West London has been working on a programme to re-shape services under the banner of Shaping a Healthier Future (SaHF) and much has been achieved over the past seven years. This includes 24/7 urgent care centres in every borough of NW London; improvements to maternity care and emergency paediatric care; and a range of initiatives to help people get the specialist care they need closer to home without having to be admitted to hospital.
With the publication of the NHS Long Term Plan and today’s statement from the Secretary of State – both of which align with our thinking locally - now is a good time to move on and share how we plan to respond to the challenges and opportunities as we face them today in order to achieve the most with, and for, our patients and local communities.

Care home staff came together to celebrate the improvements they have made to care homes across North West London.
The celebration was held on 7 March at City University of London following the conclusion of a leadership support programme that began last year. The programme’s aim was to improve leadership in care homes across the patch by supporting and mentoring care home managers to better support staff, residents and their families.
