Helping you stay healthy
How we think about healthcare in Croydon is changing. Where once the focus may have been only on treating you when you were ill or injured, now it’s also about helping you keep healthy. So that everyone gets the most from the services we commission, we work with other Croydon health and social care providers to focus on:
- promoting healthy lifestyle choices to prevent illness
- education to help people identify problems and conditions early
- keeping healthy with self-care and self-management of long-term conditions
- high-quality care and treatment.
Right now we are developing our plans to improve how Croydon’s health and social care providers work together. Our aim is to get the best value healthcare possible for the people of Croydon so they can live longer, healthier and happier lives. This includes working together across the system to direct residents to the most appropriate place for them to get the right care, at the right time. You can read a bit more about this, and how it relates to patient choice, here.
We work closely with Croydon Public Health and other south London clinical commissioning groups.
We have launched the Health Help Now website and app to help Croydon residents get the best possible help and support for their health and wellbeing.
