Review of community health services and mental health services in north central London
NHS North Central London Clinical Commissioning Group (NCL CCG) is reviewing community health services and mental health services provided to residents living in Barnet, Camden, Enfield, Haringey, and Islington.
We are inviting Islington residents and local organisations to attend this event to hear about both service reviews and give their views to help shape the services offered.
More information about the services being reviewed
Community health services, such as district nursing, play a key role in helping people to stay well and independent at home and in the community. They provide support across a range of needs and age groups but are most often used by children, older people, those living with frailty or long-term conditions like diabetes, and people who are near the end of their life. Community health services work closely with other parts of the health and care system, such as GPs, hospitals, pharmacies, and care homes.
Mental health services provide a range of mental health care and support to children, young people, and adults depending on the level of mental health need, from talking therapies such as Improving Access to Psychological Therapies (IAPT) services for more common mental health conditions, through to services for more severe mental illness, such as schizophrenia or bipolar disorder.
