North Central London (NCL) STP intend to use the support from Building Health Partnerships: Self-care programme to: 

  • Develop the emerging Care and Health Integrated Networks (CHINs) based in GP practices to better engage VCSE support (particularly through social prescribing) to deliver on local self-care priorities. Initially this will focus on Islington and then explore scaling up across the NCL STP footprint.

This work is evolving and the current focus to explore at the first full partnership session will be: 

  • What helps us to care for ourselves? Sharing what's working already re: social prescribing and other activities. Co-design actions for Care and Health Integration Networks (CHINs) to champion, and a common theme at an STP level to embed change.
