Living independent lives in North West LondonThe care of North West London’s 2 million residents is set to improve with a new drive to integrate health and social care across the eight London boroughs.

Local people will be supported by GPs who will work with community practitioners, to help residents remain independent. People will be given a single point of contact who will work with them to plan all aspects of their care taking into account all physical, mental and social care needs.

Prevention and early intervention will be central – by bringing together health and social care far more residents will be cared for at or closer to home reducing the number of unplanned emergency admissions to hospitals.

Financial savings are also expected with the money saved from keeping people out of hospital unnecessarily being ploughed back into community and social care services.
