Empowering patients

We know that to bring about change people need to feel empowered. Islington is a diverse community where there are significant health and social challenges. Working together with our communities we want to enable people to live well. In addition to commissioning local health services, we commission a wide range of programmes and initiatives that support local people to have the right knowledge and develop the skills they need to look after their own health.

Our self-care page features more information about some of the initiatives available in Islington to help people better manage their physical and mental health, as well as quotes and stories from patients on how local health services have benefited them.
