Testing whole-system solutions to complex health issues in cities
We have been working in our place in South London for over 500 years. Since 2017, we've taken a different approach, focusing on the specificity of our area, its assets and challenges. In our refreshed approach, we combine data, evidence and insights from people's lived experience to guide how we work through our programmes, building partnerships at different scales to drive better health in our communities and beyond.
