NHS England and NHS Improvement funded the Healthwatch network to carry out engagement with communities across the country to establish how the Long Term Plan (LTP) should be implemented locally.
Local Healthwatch worked together to find out what local people think. What people told us will be shared with the NHS and will be used to help develop the plan for our area.
Overall, South East London residents ranked the following as the top three very important aspects for them to live a healthy life
