Today the London Health Commission published its report, Better Health for London, and presented ten aspirations for improving health and care in the capital to the Mayor of London, Boris Johnson.

As the Academic Health Science Networks (AHSN) and Academic Health Science Centres (AHSC) in London we very much welcome the report’s focus on improving population health (both physical and mental), supporting primary care, strengthening economic growth and maximising opportunities for digital health for the benefit of those living and working in and around London. We endorse the collaborative approach of the commission in the development of the report, and we were pleased to have contributed.

We are delighted that the report recognises the strong role our existing collaborations across London and beyond, especially across the South East, can play in delivering this exciting agenda, through harnessing the capital’s expertise in science, technology and innovation. We look forward to further developing our partnerships in order to meet the needs of our population.

In line with the collaborative approach to the development of such an important report, we will take the appropriate time to review the detail across our partnerships, particularly addressing those areas where we can best enable implementation both individually, and in conjunction with others, for the maximum benefit of our patients and population.
