The North Central London (NCL) Start Well programme has now been underway for more than a year and continues to ensure we are delivering the best care to meet the needs of local children, young people, pregnant women and people, and babies.

You can read the latest update on the programme on the NCL health and care website, which includes information on a formal options appraisal process for maternity, neonates, and paediatric surgical services and an Integrated Impact Assessment which will ensure Start Well helps to reduces inequalities in service provision and outcomes and fulfils legal obligations relating to equality and diversity, sustainable development, and health and wellbeing.
