Help shape the future of the NHS​ in Southwark and south east London

The NHS has to continually move forward so that in 10 years’ time we have a service fit for the future. The NHS Long Term Plan has been drawn up by frontline staff, patients groups, and national experts to create an ambitious but realistic plan.

Our Healthier South East London (OHSEL), a partnership of local NHS organisations, councils and other key stakeholders, invites you to help make some big decisions on what this means for our area. 

We hope you will be able to attend the upcoming events in our borough and across south east London. 

Two types of event are being held during July 2019:

Borough events

These provide an opportunity to share your views and help shape the future of the NHS in that particular borough and across south east London. All six of the south east London boroughs are having their own events.
