North Central London (NCL) STP intend to use the support from Building Health Partnerships: Self-care programme to: 

  • Develop the emerging Care and Health Integrated Networks (CHINs) based in GP practices to better engage VCSE support (particularly through social prescribing) to deliver on local self-care priorities. Initially this will focus on Islington and then explore scaling up across the NCL STP footprint.

First Partnership Session

This work is evolving with the focus of the the first full partnership session being - What helps us care for ourselves? This covered topics such as social prescribing, sharing of what's working already and co-design actions for Care and Health Integration Networks (CHINs) to champion. There was also discussion of what a common theme could be at an STP level to embed sense.  The first partnership session's slide deck  is available to offer more details. The summary or notes and actions are also available here.

The second partnership session took place on the 7th December. The slides are available for download here.
