NHS organisations have worked together with Richmond Council and voluntary organisations in the borough of Richmond, to review the local community’s health and care needs to develop a Health and Care Plan for the borough.

The emerging draft Health and Care Plan is a two-year plan for 2019-21 which focuses on actions which no single organisation can achieve alone: where health, social care and the voluntary sector working together will have maximum impact. This draft plan should be read in the context of our other local health and care strategies and it has been developed in partnership with local people, voluntary community groups, health and care partners.

Feedback from local people has been gathered through an extensive period of engagement and we also held an engagement event in Twickenham in November 2018 which gave us a further opportunity to hear from local people and health and care staff.

This month we are publishing our draft Health and Care Plan discussion document which describes the vision, priorities and actions to meet the health and care needs of Richmond into the future.

All of the partners involved in providing health and care services in Richmond are now sharing this draft discussion document with local people to ask for their views on the actions set out in the plan, under the priority areas listed below:

Start Well

  • Improve the mental wellbeing and resilience of our children and young people
  • Support children and young people with special educational needs, disabilities and complex health and care needs to flourish and be independent in their local communities
  • Focus on reducing obesity to improve the health of our children and young people 

Live Well 

  • Support people to stay healthy and manage their long-term health conditions
  • Promote mental wellbeing and support those who experience poor mental health to avoid mental health crisis
  • Reduce health inequalities for people with learning disabilities

Age Well

  • Encourage active, resilient and inclusive communities that support people to live at home independently, if possible
  • Support people to plan for their final years so they have a dignified death in a place of their choice

Next steps

Your feedback will be used to develop a delivery plan with clearly identified lead organisations so that health and care partners can work together and make a difference for local people.
