Interested in the future of your health and care services?
Come to a series of events happening across south east London
The NHS is one of our most valued institutions. It belongs to us all and a partnership of healthcare professionals, patients and local residents have come together to make sure that the NHS in the future is as good, sustainable and cherished as it is now and has been in the past.
Everyone knows that the NHS faces considerable pressures, mainly because we have a growing and ageing population. With increasing life expectancy comes ailments of old age such as heart disease and arthritis.
Rather than this being a problem, it is a real opportunity for all of our communities to come together and work out the best ways of helping our NHS to adapt and change to meet the increasing demand on services.
It is far better that we can plan and shape this together according to the needs of our communities, rather than allow problems to build up and continue to affect our services in the future.
We are running a series of events and want as many of you as possible to come along, hear our thinking and discuss what this will mean for your local services.
The health and care issues we are looking at include:
- how we can improve community care and care outside hospital
- how different parts of the health and care system can work better together to give people the care they need
- how we can best meet the rising demand for services from an expanding and ageing population and respond to the financial pressuresthis places on the NHS
- and crucially, what more can we do to stop people becoming unwell
A Message from Our Healthier South East London:
Our Healthier Lambeth, Our Healthier Bromley and Our Healthier Greenwich events postponed
As a result of the prime minister’s decision to call a general election on 8 June and the subsequent vote in the House of Commons to allow the election to go ahead, the Our Healthier Lambeth, Our Healthier Bromley and Our Healthier Greenwich events have been postponed until after the election (rescheduled dates will be confirmed as soon as possible).
During the pre-election period, government departments and their arm’s length bodies are subject to strict guidance and should not conduct any public activity which could compete for public attention or influence the result of the election. This includes meetings involving members of the public.
We apologise for any inconvenience the postponement may cause. We will publicise the rescheduled events as soon as we are able to confirm the dates.
Thank you for your patience
