Our care in collaboration across Croydon


To provide ‘Excellent care for all’ we need to deliver expert care consistently across all of our services. We also need to do much more to help people in our borough to stay well and have greater control over where and how they receive treatment.

Our patients tell us that their care can become fragmented when many different agencies are involved, so we have formed new alliances across Croydon to give people access to more joined-up care and support.

To look after people at every stage of life, we have joined forces with our partners in the borough:

  • For children: 

    With our local authority, we have opened Croydon’s first Child Development Centre and joined health and social care services together to give children aged under 5 the "Best Startin life

  • For all ages:

    With our GP partners, we now run a network of GP hubs across the borough, including the Urgent Care Centre alongside our Emergency Department to make it easier for people of all ages in our borough to get expert urgent and emergency care.

  • For older people: 

    With the local authority, GPs and partners in mental health and the voluntary sector, we are making major improvements in how services are delivered – starting with our care for people aged over 65 as part of the One Croydon alliance.
