Cost of living
The UK is currently in the middle of an economic crisis, which is negatively impacting patients and local communities. The rising cost-of-living poses potential ongoing risks to patients and local communities in maintaining their health and accessing healthcare services. CLCH are committed to supporting staff, patients and working with system partners to help keep them healthy and well at home
CLCH provides community healthcare services across London and Hertfordshire.
To support patients and communities who may be feeling the financial pressures of the cost-of-living crisis and price rises, there are a number of local organisations providing resources and guidance on the financial support available to you.
