Westminster is right in the heart of the nation’s capital city and home to a socio-economically diverse resident population of just under 250,000 people, with a daytime population of approximately one million people – the highest daytime population of any London borough.
Westminster is characterised by a large proportion of young working age residents, high levels of migration in and out the borough, and ethnic and cultural diversity.
Central London Clinical Commissioning Group commissions 35 GP practices and is responsible for the planning and design of many of the health services across the borough.
This includes planned and emergency hospital care, rehabilitation and most community and mental health services, as well as the joint commissioning of learning disability services. Adult social care and services for children, young people and families are commissioned by the City of Westminster Council.
Healthwatch Westminster has a Local Committee that includes residents and representatives from organisations in the borough who work together to influence and improve health and care services in Westminster.
The committee meets every couple of months to share information, give feedback from patients and service users and help set priorities for our work. Our current priorities are changes to mental health day services in Westminster and care coordination for people living with long term health conditions.
