Who we are

Who we are

Guildford and Waverley Health and Care Alliance is part of Surrey Heartlands Integrated Care System. It serves a population of just over 220,000 people and covers Guildford, Cranleigh, Godalming and Haslemere.

We are an Alliance of local partners including the NHS, local Councils, health and care providers and the community and voluntary sector. We support a population of just over 220,000 people across the Boroughs of Guildford and Waverley. We have joined together to address health inequalities and make a difference in helping our communities live healthier lives.

We look at the needs and challenges of our populations, encourage innovative thinking and new ways of working, to build on the strengths of our local services and maximise opportunities to deliver services to local people when and where they need them.

Our Guildford and Waverley population will start well, stay and live well, age well and die well.

Our aims

Our strategic goals for the next five years are to:

  • Improve health and wellbeing
  • Support our communities
  • Integrate health and care services
  • Put the local health economy on a sustainable financial path.

Our challenges

We have several challenges as a local population, including social isolation and loneliness, falls prevention, end-of-life care and addressing the broader determinants of health. We are also focused on improving the patient experience and ensuring people get the right care in the right place at the right time.
