Commenting on the unveiling of the NHS long-term plan, Cllr Ray Puddifoot MBE, London Councils’ Executive member for health and care, said:

"London boroughs firmly believe that Londoners should have access to top quality healthcare and today’s announcement includes a welcome commitment to driving improvements by breaking down barriers between health and care services.

"As a devolution area, London is at the forefront of exploring new ways of integrating NHS and local government services and boosting the impact of prevention. London boroughs want to play a leading role in helping our residents to lead healthier lives for longer and we look forward to working with NHS and Government partners to determine how the aspirations set out in this Plan can best improve the lives of Londoners."
