By working together we can break down boundaries and provide every child and young person in South West London with the support they need to be happy, healthy and safe, and reach their full potential.
A network is a cooperative group of people with a shared purpose. Clinical Networks (such as the Cardiac, Trauma, Neonatal or Cancer Networks) successfully demonstrate that working together across professional boundaries can lead to an improvement in the quality of care offered.
The SWL Children and Young People’s Network launched on 8 January 2015 and will focus on the health and well-being of all children and young people in South West London (Croydon, Kingston, Merton, Richmond, Sutton, Wandsworth).
The network is based on the following 7 core principles:
Key membership includes Health Care professionals, Public Health professionals, Social Care professionals, Education professionals, Voluntary sector professionals and public representatives (children, young people, parents, carers).
Key relationships will be built with local commissioners, local authorities, London Children’s Strategic Clinical Network, and South West London Collaborative Commissioning amongst others.
By becoming a member of the network you have the opportunity to work together with a range of people from South West London to ensure high quality, safe and sustainable services for children and young people.
