    South East London Transforming Care Partnership Board (HW-GI-1117-A003)

    In 2012, following the scandal at Winterbourne View, the Department of Health, the Local Government Association, the Association of Directors of Adult Social Care, a number of Royal Colleges and voluntary sector organisations signed the Winterbourne View Concordat1 to “commit to a programme for change to transform health and care services and improve the quality of the care offered to children, young people and adults with learning disabilities or autism who have mental health conditions or behaviour that challenges to ensure better care outcomes for them”.

    Transformation Plan for Children and Young Peoples’ Mental Health and Emotional Wellbeing (HW-GI-1117-A001)

    The Bexley Clinical Commissioning Group and our partners have worked collaboratively to commence the transformation of child and adolescent mental health services (CAMHS) across Bexley. This new investment in CAMHS has enabled Bexley to commission a lead provider to deliver a seamless pathway for specialist tier 3 and targeted tier 2 CAMHS and with six other SEL CCG’s a specialist provider to deliver the community eating disorder service.


    Our CAMHS priorities aligned with Our Future in Mind has enabled us to be confident in how we have planned to use the additional local Five year Forward View Investment (2014) plus the new Transforming CAMHS funding allocated to CCGs in 2015 to improve the mental health and emotional wellbeing of our residents.

    South East London: Sustainability and Transformation Plan (HW-GI-1117-A002)

    In south east London (SEL) we have a history of partnership working. This includes collaborations between commissioners and providers, across health and social care, with the voluntary sector and citizens and with education and research institutions and networks. The six south east London CCGs have in place a well-established collaborative approach, and work with all of London's’ 32 CCGs and NHS England to enable transformation across the capital, including through the Healthy London Partnership (HLP). Providers work together as part of formal and informal clinical networks, including specialised services supported by our King’s Health Partner’s (KHP) Academic Health Science Centre. Organisations in the footprint also contribute to and use resources developed by support infrastructures such as the Health innovation Network (HIN) and Collaboration for Leadership in Applied Health Research and Care (CLARHC). The provider landscape is changing as we welcome the development of 15 at scale primary care federations covering all of south east London.


    Although CCGs were developing a transformation strategy previously, the STP process has broadened this and has taken it much further by bringing organisations together to establish a place based leadership and decision making structure (that is, one which focuses on the population of SEL rather than the individual organisations). The aim of this is to collectively identify our priorities and to help ensure that health and care services are built around the needs of residents.This plan outlines our collective understanding of the challenges we face and sets out our approach and actions to address them.
