Who we are

Who we are

Our Alliance is a formal partnership of key organisations across the Boroughs of Woking, Runnymede, Elmbridge and Spelthorne (circa 370,000 people) that all have an impact on the health, wellbeing and happiness of our local communities. We seek to tackle some of the most significant health and care challenges facing people in North West Surrey, transforming how we operate our services to meet the challenges posed to a 21st-century health system. We believe we can achieve more by working together and we are committed to joining up health and care services and considering all a person’s health, wellbeing and social care needs.

What we do

We are looking at the broader determinants of health, such as housing, education and the environment.

We bring together the County and Borough Councils who have a critical role in education, job opportunities, social care, the environment, housing and planning. Alongside, health organisations provide care and treatment across General Practice, Community Services, Mental Health, Hospital and Hospice care. All organisations have the simple aim of looking to use our collective experience, resources and efforts to have the greatest positive impact on the communities we serve.

Vital to our success is harnessing local communities' skills, expertise, assets, and goodwill to develop a culture of healthy living and supportive neighbourhoods. 

As an Alliance, we have agreed to work to a single, shared set of goals to deliver excellent outcomes for local people, working within a defined delegated budget and decision-making structure. 

We are working with a budget that is jointly owned and invested according to the needs of an individual or community, eliminating duplication of effort and improving the efficient and sustainable use of resources.

Together we can bring so many more benefits to the local communities we serve.
