We ensure NHS and partner organisations across our Integrated Care System work closely together at times of greatest need.
An example of this is the Covid-19 pandemic.
The pandemic has contributed to significant pressure on NHS services and impacted the performance of health and care across the country.
Health and care organisations are collaborating across South West London to reduce waiting lists and clinicians have led work to find new and better ways to make services more efficient and effective for patients. We’re also developing strategies together to coordinate our response to similar events in the future.
This collaborative approach has helped us to develop our recovery plans so that we can return the performance of services to levels experienced before the pandemic.
