Welcome to Sutton Health and Care!

Welcome to Sutton Health and Care!

Sutton Health and Care is a pioneering partnership made up of the GP federation in Sutton, the London Borough of Sutton, South West London and St George’s Mental Health Trust and Epsom and St Helier hospitals. Working together, we provide community services in Sutton, caring for adults in their own homes across the borough, providing children’s community health services, and sexual health services.

On Monday 1 April 2019, adult and children's community services transferred to Sutton Health and Care from The Royal Marsden, while sexual health services transferred from Chelsea and Westminster. Adult community services, specialist children's services and sexual health services staff are employed by Epsom and St Helier hospitals as part of Sutton Health and Care. Health visiting and school nursing services and the associated safeguarding and admin services have been taken in-house by the London Borough of Sutton.

The pioneering partnership of Sutton Health and Care is truly exciting, and together, we can achieve more for the people we care for.

Historically, there have been boundary lines between the organisations that provide care to people in their homes, in GP surgeries and in hospitals, but we have always been in united in our mission to provide great care to the people who need us. It’s on those grounds that the Sutton Health and Care partnership was brought together – we want local people to receive the care that they need in the right environment. Bringing together our expertise will allow us to improve patient care and will enable local people to access the right support, care and treatment more easily than ever before.

Almost 500 staff work in the Sutton Health and Care partnership, and its work is overseen by the Alliance Board. Each partner in the alliance (Epsom and St Helier hospitals, Sutton GP Services, London Borough of Sutton, and South West London and St George's Mental Health Trust) has an equal say in decision making. Epsom and St Helier hospitals, as the lead provider, holds the Care Quality Commission (CQC) registration for the partnership.
