1. From 1 July, Lambeth Together formally becomes one of six local care partnerships of south east London’s new integrated care system. These new arrangements, brought in with the Health and Care Act 2022, see health and care organisations working together on a statutory footing with the voluntary sector and local communities to plan and deliver joined up services and to improve the health of people who live and work in their area.

  2. Lambeth is celebrating Carers Week which starts today, Monday 6 June 2022, to celebrate and recognise the vital contribution made by unpaid carers. Across the country carers have taken on huge challenges as a result of the Covid pandemic, many providing more care while dealing with financial pressures and increased isolation.

  3. Community partners and the local NHS have teamed up to bring blood pressure checks and health advice into the community, catching dominoes players as they take part in a community tournament.

    Lambeth Together partner Black Thrive, in partnership with The Brixton Immortals Dominoes Club, NHS England and general practice staff from Lambeth’s Hills, Brooks, and Dales Primary Care Network, with support from the Ubele Initiative, are running this initiative to support improved detection and management of high blood pressure among Black men.
