​Sutton Health and Care Plan Event

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 Sutton.

We talked about the kinds of things which no single organisation can achieve alone – like improving mental health and supporting older people. Discussions were centred on whether we are focusing on the right areas for Sutton, 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 below which captured the feeling of the day. ​


We are using the ideas generated during the event as we develop our Sutton Health and Care Plan. We'll be publishing progress on our plans for discussion in spring 2019. 

We will use this discussion document to continue the conversation - and start talking to people about how to put ideas into action.

We'll be speaking to the communities most involved in and affected by what is included in the discussion document. For example, we'll be working with young people, their parents and teachers on anything proposed around children and young people's mental health.

To support the development of our local plan, we will also be looking to the similar priorities around prevention and early intervention that have been published in the NHS long-term plan, issued recently by the Government. We'll be discussing the key parts of this and how it fits with our own local plan with people in Sutton in early 2019.
