Merton Health and Care Plan

Merton Health and Care Plan – a discussion document published

 

The plan has been published as a discussion document and has used the ideas generated during an event held in November 2018 which brought together health and care frontline staff, local people and representatives from lots of different community organisations to talk about what’s important for health and care in Merton.

 

It is published as a discussion document so we can test it with our partners and those who helped shape it. We will use this discussion document to continue the conversation - and start talking to people about how to put ideas into action.

 

Please read the discussion document below before providing your feedback, by the 31st of May 2019.

Background:
 

Merton Health and Care Together

 

Health and care organisations in Merton are working more closely together to make services better connected and more joined up through a programme called Merton Health and Care Together.

 

The NHS, Council, voluntary sector and Healthwatch have come together to look at what’s important for health and care in Merton, what the challenges are and how if different organisations work more closely together we can make a difference. Our aspiration for the people of Merton is that they start well, live well and age well.

The priority areas for improvement which the programme has identified are:

Start Well

  • Children and Young Peoples’ Mental Health
  • Children and Young People’s Community Services

 

Live Well

  • Primary Care Development
  • East Merton Model of Health and Wellbeing
  • Primary Mental Healthcare
  • Diabetes

 

Age Well

  • Health and Social Care Integration
  • Dementia Friendly Merton

 

Health and care event – November 2018

 

In November 2018 we held an event which brought together health and care frontline staff, local people and representatives from lots of different community organisations to talk about what’s important for health and care in Merton.

 

We talked about the kinds of things which no single organisation can achieve alone – like improving mental health and supporting people with diabetes. Discussions were centred on whether we are focusing on the right areas for Merton, and how to ensure the action we take has maximum impact for local people.

 

There was great energy and fresh ideas in the room. It was clear that people were passionate about health and care in our borough and wanted to support us.

 

You can watch a video of the event which captured the feeling of the day.
