About the strategic framework

The London Borough of Richmond upon Thames Local Authority (LA) and Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) are committed to working in partnership to deliver our first integrated three year Prevention Strategic Framework - to improve the health and well-being of our population and to support people to remain independent.

The four priorities for this strategic framework are identified as:

  • Priority 1: Making health and wellbeing everyone’s business
  • Priority 2: Creating healthy communities – harnessing local community assets to support people and their carers
  • Priority 3: Re-shaping healthy lifestyles services and embedding self-care
  • Priority 4: Reducing and delaying demand for care – promoting a recovery focussed model across health and social care pathways
