As we approach the end of 2022, we are looking back on some of the transformation and improvement work we’ve planned and delivered with partners across health and care and the VCSE sector over the past 12 months.
- In January 2022, Thrive LDN hosted London’s first ever Great Mental Health Day. Over 60 events took place online and across London. The countdown for #GreatMentalHealth Day 2023 has started, find out more here: https://thriveldn.co.uk
- In February we supported the recruitment of over 100 NHS clinicians to teach basic lifesaving skills to vulnerable young people as part of a partnership between the London Violence Reduction Unit and YourStance.
- In March, we worked with NHS – England London and launched the first part of a mammographer recruitment campaign to encourage people to join the breast screening workforce; as an apprentice, a current radiographer or mammographer. See the campaign here.
- In April, as part of The London Health and Care Partnership, we provided funding to six local projects supporting the ten priorities of the London Vision, improving health outcomes for people across our city. Find out more about this partnership work here.
- In May, we worked with a team of experts by experience to launch the ‘Understand personality disorders’ campaign and podcast series: aiming to raise awareness of personality disorders which are too often misunderstood. View the #UnderstandPersonalityDisorders campaign page where you can also listen to the podcast series.
- The schools mental health toolkit was updated in 2022, with improved navigation and a new hub for mental health resources in relation to LGBTIQ+ launched in June. Browse the digital toolkit here.
- Fast-Track Cities London joined London’s Pride parade in July to raise awareness of HIV. Sharing a key message:
People on HIV treatment can’t pass it on.

- In August, the Personalised Care and Social Prescribing team worked with leaders in London to publish 5 core case studies demonstrating practical ways that personalised care ARRS roles can help tackle #inequality in communities. These resources are designed to support social prescribing to tackle health inequalities, by targeting specific cohorts of people. Find links to read each case study in full here.
- In September the Homeless Health team launched a report sharing findings from an audit conducted across 19 London hospitals, the first of its scale, to capture the health and care needs of patients experiencing #homelessness, and identify gaps and barriers to safe discharge from hospital. See the report here.
- In October, we worked with NHS London to run the sixth #AskAboutAsthma campaign which reached a record 8 million people across the country, this year highlighting #healthinequalities and adding a fourth ask about #airpollution. Find all of the campaign content here.
- Last but not least, Good Thinking launched its new website last month, providing greater accessibility through an improved layout and structure, making it easier for Londoners to find the resources they need for better mental wellbeing. Browse the site here.
And that brings us back to December where as announced earlier this month, Healthy London Partnership and Healthcare Consulting have come together as a single team, called ‘Transformation Partners in Health and Care’ (TPHC).
The new name and identity reflect the core values that underpin our team’s partnerships and consultancy services. The way we work isn’t changing but together we are stronger, with our unique blend of expertise, knowledge and experience.
We hope you’ve enjoyed this week’s look back and thank the many teams and partners across London who we’re grateful to have supported this year.
