Healthier North West London Newsletter – Winter Edition

The winter 2015 newsletter explains how NHS teams are working hard across NW London with their partners in the health and social care system to deliver the best possible care.


Their partners are working in new and different ways so that whether you visit your GP, local hospital, or a service closer to your home in the community, you get the right care at the moment you need it most. The newsletter also includes details of where you can get accurate and up to date information about the NHS in your area.  Read newsletter here



Stand up for Social Work campaign – Community Care

Community Care is re-launching its popular Stand up for Social Work campaign to raise the profile of social work in an election year and in the face of budget cuts combined with huge demand.


They want to showcase the inspiring work that is being done every day by social workers but also want greater transparency about the impact of budget cuts and the huge increases in demand seen over the last few years. The toll this is taking on dedicated and skilled professionals cannot be ignored if service users are to stay safe.


They  believe that standing up for social work means three things:


  • Taking pride in the great work you do and talking about it to inspire others
  • Being honest about the challenges you face
  • Giving you the support you need to protect vulnerable people
