What is Partnership Southwark?
In Southwark, health and care partners are working together to establish Partnership Southwark to change the way services are commissioned and delivered in the borough. Partnership Southwark involves partners from primary, community and secondary care services, mental health and social care.Partnership Southwark wants to do things differently, with and for, our local communities so that every part of the health and care system works collectively to make the borough an amazing place to be born, live a full healthy life, and spend one’s final years.
We have made a lot of progress by setting up neighbourhood delivery and developing coordinated care for people with three or more long-term conditions. From 2019, “Partnership Southwark” will also include voluntary sector organisations so that we can tackle the causes of health inequalities and prevent illness. We also want to make better use of data and digital technology to be more proactive in how we deliver care and support. Most importantly, we want to work with and for local people and communities.

Working with neighbourhoods
Partnership Southwark will move health and care to a model where services and support are delivered within and across nine neighbourhoods of 30,000 – 50,000 people. You can read more about our neighbourhood delivery here.
