Our programme to slow down people’s progression from one to many long-term conditions
People’s progression to multiple long-term conditions is influenced by a complex mix of factors, including individual health, the social factors in people’s lives and the communities in which they live. In Lambeth and Southwark we see significant variation in people’s progression from one condition to many. For example, those living in the most deprived areas of our boroughs are developing long-term conditions on average 10 years earlier than those living in the least.
Through our programme, we’re aiming to partner with others and fund projects that slow down progression from one to many long-term conditions. We’re concentrating our efforts on working-age people in Lambeth and Southwark, focusing on those at risk of rapid progression to multiple conditions.
With our partners we hope to improve people’s health, address the social factors influencing progression and strengthen agency and connectedness in communities.
