1Improving Lives

From helping people coping with chronic pain to live more active lives, to reducing the risk of falls due to poor vision and balance , we are dedicated to improving the health and wellbeing of south Londoners.

We do this in collaboration with our members and partners, by identifying evidence-based innovations that will improve lives, and then by supporting health and care organisations to adopt and adapt these innovations.

Some of our 2018-19 achievements included ensuring all 10 maternity units in south London participated in the PReCePT programme aimed at reducing the risk of cerebral palsy in pre-term births, and the uptake of 400 new devices across all 12 south London boroughs to improve the detection of atrial fibrillation, enabling treatment which reduces the risk of disabling or fatal strokes.
