They have set goals to improve equalities in health priority areas for Lambeth. These include: mental health, cardiovascular disease, diabetes, childhood obesity, smoking, alcohol, HIV and sexual health.
There is an event for people in Lambeth. Patients, carers, patient groups, voluntary and community organisations, local residents and stakeholders are welcome.
