The AGM gave local residents the opportunity to find out about what we have achieved over the last year, how we have used the funding available to us and the part that local people can play in helping us to improve health and wellbeing in Merton going forward.
The past year has been one of change and innovation for the CCG and we are now firmly established as a strong, clinically-led organisation delivering patient-led service change and improvement for our local population.
It has been a very busy year where we have made significant progress in a number of areas. Highlights of the past year include:
successful opening of the Nelson Health Centre
work to develop an entirely new model for health and wellbeing for East Merton; the model will describe how services across the whole spectrum of health, social care and voluntary sector can work together to provide more local, integrated and preventive ‘out of hospital’ care;
the creation of a
Merton CCG Patient Engagement Group
a smooth transition to new providers of adults and children’s community health services;
appointed a new provider for our talking therapies services, and improved mental health services, putting Merton on track to achieve the national recovery rate target and national target for access to psychological therapies;
improved the dementia diagnosis rate to 75.9 per cent
built strong working partnerships with the London Borough of Merton, the Merton Health and Well-being Board and local voluntary and community groups.
worked with patients, carers and the public to develop a more integrated approach to health and well-being across Merton.
