Progress on the London Health Commission
Timeline of the Commission
Background to the London Health Commission:
An independent inquiry, chaired by AraDarziand reporting directly to the Mayor of London.
Examining how London’s health and wellbeing, healthcare and the health economy can be improved for the benefit of the population.
Underpinned by engagement with the public, local government, the NHS, business, the voluntary and community sector, and others.
Final report to be produced in Autumn 2014 which describes the future vision for health and wellbeing in London and makes recommendations for the Mayor, NHS and other stakeholders.
There have been many London reviews – so we need to reflect on how this Commission can make an impact:
Increasingly cities are the innovators of health improvement
Use the voice of an independent Commission to engage patients, the public and London
When London acts, it has national and international resonance
Leverage the Mayor’s position and powers
Reflecting what we’ve heard so far, five principles are influencing how the Commission is working:
Connect and engage with Londoners
Use London’s strengths to address its challenges
Understand past successes and failures
Take a global view
Build a coalition for change
A number of issues are emerging from our Call for Evidence and work so far:
Information and Technology
Health and Wellbeing
