Mitcham Carnival

As part of our work to promote health and wellbeing in Merton, the CCG again developed a Health Hub at the June 2017 Mitcham carnival to talk to local residents about health services.  Key partners including as Merton Public Health, One You Merton, Age UK Merton, The Expert Patient Programme and London Ambulance Service, Over 1000 people visited the Health Hub to get advice and information on, GP appointments, healthy living and finding out about the development of the Wilson Health and Wellbeing Hub.

One of the key messages that we heard was the need for information for residents on the new GP hubs in the borough. As a result of what we heard we began a publicity campaign to promote the use of the hubs in Merton which has resulted in a large increase in the number of people getting evening and weekend hub appointments.
