Executive summary: vision and principles
• Our five year strategic plan sets out how we will work collaboratively to transform the health and care landscape
across NWL in order to achieve our shared vision, deliver improved health outcomes and patient experience,

• In addition, we recognise our broader role in society (both as employers and commissioners), and will address the
determinants of health.
Executive summary: case for change and outcome ambitions
Case for Change
• The health needs of the people of North West London are

increasing, and the way we have organised our hospitals
and community-based services in the past will not meet
the needs of the future.
• From a commissioner perspective, if we do nothing we
estimate we would need £365m more to keep pace with
demand. Hospitals in NWL will also face significant
financial challenges even if they become as efficient as
they can be. This means services need to be redesigned
to be more affordable.
• NWL’s five year strategic plan will deliver two key
1. Improved health outcomes and patient experience,
as captured within the 7 NHS Outcome ambitions
2. A financially sustainable health system
• All of the programmes and plans set out in our five year
plan have been developed to achieve these ambitions.
