London Babies, Children and Young People’s Transformation Team

About us

The NHS England and Improvement (London region) Babies, Children and Young People (BCYP) Transformation Programme is a collaboration between the five Integrated Care Boards (ICBs) in London, plus the North and South Thames Paediatric Networks and London Neonatal Network, Office for Health Improvement and Disparities (OHID), Health Education England – London, the Greater London Authority and local councils, voluntary sector and other partners.

It has been established to deliver a programme of work to support the London Case for change and  NHS Long Term Plan implementation across London. The aim is to enable transformation and to deliver demonstrable improvements in health outcomes for Babies, Children and Young People in London.

 

Our drivers and ambitions

  • Voices of young people will be at the heart of everything we do. ​
  • All children and young people will have the best start in life and the support and healthcare needed to enable them to be safe from harm and to enjoy healthy lifestyles, to do well in learning and have skills for life.​
  • We will try to close the gap in health and well-being outcomes for all children and young people across the capital irrespective of where they were born, where they live and go to school. ​
  • To make healthcare in London work for 0-25-year-olds and those who care for them.

The NHS Long Term Plan, and London Health and care Vision sets out the crucial role the NHS plays in improving the health of children and young people.  These need to be considered alongside the wider determinants of health including social and economic influences and what is important to young people, families and carers to help keep them well and maximise opportunities for the future. Further useful information can be found on the Children and young people – Healthy London Partnership.

What we do

Our role is to advise on strategy and development, work with organisations to support the implementation of the Long-Term Plan and London Vision. We will work alongside key partners to deliver a programme of work across key areas, summarised in the London Regional Priorities document.
