Shaping a Healthier Future - statement

26 March 2019

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.
