Bi-borough VCS Health and Wellbeing Providers Group

Bi-borough VCS Health and Wellbeing Providers Group

An essential link with the NHS, Council and other voluntary sector and community providers across North-West London.

  • All voluntary and community sector (VCS) organisations which provide health and wellbeing services in Kensington & Chelsea and Westminster are invited.
  • The group will link local organisations with the new North West London NHS structures, in two ways:
    • it’s part of the structure of 3ST, or Third Sector Together, a collaboration of VCS organisations which will provide a strategic and commissioning link between the VCS and the new Integrated Care System in the NHS’s North West London region. 
    • it mirrors the NHS’s new local structure, the ICP or Integrated Care Partnership, within which operations will be run on a bi-borough basis.

Why attend?

This meeting is different to the health and wellbeing meetings which KCSC and One Westminster run within boroughs.  It will focus on the developing Integrated Care System (ICS) in North-West London, developments at a bi-borough level, and help to ensure that the VCS is treated as an equal, recognised and respected partner by other parts of the system.  The meetings will include:

  • Specific discussion about strategic NHS developments at NW London and borough level.
  • Opportunities to participate in the design of services and delivery partnerships.
  • Identifying organisations which can represent the sector on NHS operational groups. 
  • Ensuring that the sector is well represented at NHS meetings to improve the effectiveness of services for residents and the availability of funding.
