Local Care Networks - Long Term Conditions
Local care networks (LCNs) bring together a range of health care professionals working together as a team in the community including doctors, nurses, social workers, housing support workers, home care workers and therapists who work with a patient to achieve the goals that are important to the in a clear jointly agreed way.
In 2016/2017 local care networks across Lambeth and Southwark are prioritising the delivery of co-ordinated care to people with complex needs; i.e. those people with three or more long term conditions. Healthwatch Southwark has supported the LCNs to engage with Southwark residents living with 3 or more Long Term Conditions (LTCs) to help inform their plans.
