Why do we want your views?

The London Borough of Merton and Merton Clinical Commissioning Group (NHS), working alongside NHS England, are responsible for commissioning sexual health services in Merton. These services include: contraception; testing and treatment for sexually transmitted infections; information & advice; relationships and sex education in schools; and HIV prevention services.

The two organisations work with a range of stakeholders to ensure these services are delivered effectively. These include GP surgeries, pharmacies, NHS hospital trusts, community health organisations, schools and further education colleges.   

The London Borough of Merton and Merton Clinical Commissioning Group are currently developing a joint 5 year sexual health strategy. This strategy aims to set out how the two organisations will ensure everyone in Merton has good access to sexual health services and are supported to be healthy.

To inform the development of this strategy we are seeking feedback on our proposed vision, priorities and actions. We also wish to know a little bit more about the knowledge and experience of sexual health services of those who work, live, are educated in or looked after by the London Borough of Merton.

In March 2018 the Mayor of London released his vision for the future of transport in the capital called the Mayor’s Transport Strategy it sets out three priority areas for delivery; these are:-

  • Healthy Streets and healthy people
  • A good public transport experience
  • New Homes and Jobs

It also set an ambitious target for 80% of all trips in London to be made on foot, by cycle or using public transport by 2041.

The LIP is a statutory requirement under the Greater London Authority Act 1999 and all London boroughs are required to develop a document setting out how they are going to deliver the Mayor's Transport Strategy, its priorities and objectives at a local level.

The LIP3 contains an overview of the challenges and opportunities in delivering the Mayor’s Transport Strategy within Merton, a set of borough transport objectives, a short and longer term delivery plan and a series of targets set by Transport for London that we are working towards achieving.

Merton's draft LIP 3 can be found via the council webpage: https://www2.merton.gov.uk/transport-streets/transportplanning/lip3.htm 

We are seeking your views on Merton’s draft LIP3 until 12th April 2019 via online survey: https://www.surveymonkey.co.uk/r/LBMLIP3
