Greenwich colleagues hosted the latest ‘Board to Ward’ visit by ICB leaders last week.

Led by Board Chair Richard Douglas, the team’s day of meetings and visits kicked off at the Live Well Community Hub at Charlton Athletic FC’s ground. It included a meeting with the borough’s Home First/VirtualWards/Jet team and a visit to the Urgent Treatment Centre at Queen Elizabeth Hospital.

They also took in the excitement at the Greenwich Learning Disability People’s Parliament – where it was election day – and an Afrobeats family dance session arranged by Black Female Entrepreneurs Greenwich.

Richard was accompanied by Non-Executive Director Peter Matthew, Chief Nursing Officer Angela Helleur, Chief Financial Officer Mike Fox and Director of Planning and Deputy Chief Executive Sarah Cottingham.

Neil Kennett-Brown, Chief Operating Officer for Greenwich, said: “We had some fantastic and encouraging discussions with Richard, Angela, Mike, and Peter. Their feedback showed we can be really proud and positive about the work underway. We were really pleased to be able to share some of the special and wonderful service developments and services here in Greenwich.”

The board members agreed that the Greenwich Local Care Partnership is well-placed to further improve integrated health and care services for people in the royal borough.
