Healthwatch Croydon Open Forum- Sustainability and Transformation Plans for South West London

November 3, 2016 @ 11:00 am - 2:00 pm GMT

Date: 03 Nov 2016 – 11:00 to 14:00
Location: Mind in Croydon, 10 Altyre Road, East Croydon, CR0 5LA

The Healthwatch Croydon Forum, meeting quarterly, advises on our priorities and associated work programmes. The focus of this meeting is the Sustainability and Transformation Plan (STP).

The health service in its current format is unsustainable, and ‘doing nothing is not an option’. As part of its ‘Five Year Forward View’ the NHS has drafted a range of proposals to make services more efficient and integrated, while at the same time, increasing quality. The Forum will consider the proposals on primary and acute care.
