North London Partners in health and care

Message from Helen - February 2019

Welcome to February’s newsletter which has programme information on new and innovative ways of partnership working in order to deliver better health care outcomes for our residents and also to help meet key priorities from The NHS London Term Plan.

Read Dr Jenny Cross’s blog to find out how North London Partner’s chronic kidney disease project has developed an innovative virtual healthcare model to improve the care of patients living with the condition in primary care.

Arsenal Football Club has been the setting for engagement workshops with children and young people to ensure their views will be taken into account and help shape the North-Central London Asthma Plan.

Thank you to all the GPs who have taken up the Clinical Advice and Guidance Services, this allows GPs to access advice from a consultant of a particular specialty when they are considering making a hospital referral.  In October 2018 there were 1,239 CAG referrals made compared with 863 in September  - an increase of 44%.
