Harrow Primary Care Executive Group (PCEG) is established as a group of the NHS North West London Integrated Care Board (NWLICB).

In keeping with the commitment to maintain and enhance primary care locally, as much business as possible will be transacted at NHS NW London borough level.

PCEG’s role is to oversee the development of primary care at a place based level, ensuring that NW London and national requirements are delivered and assurance provided through both the place based governance arrangements (where a decision impacts only the local geography) and the NW London Local Care governance arrangements (where more than one geography is impacted). 

Find out more about the Harrow PCEG and how to join our meetings in public.

The Harrow Citizen Health Forum is held every quarter. It is a public meeting, open to all Harrow residents. Each meeting features a panel made up of Harrow borough leaders from the NHS, GPs, the local authority (council), Public Health. The meeting is chaired by NHS North West London’s engagement and equalities team.

Meetings are a mix of online via Microsoft Teams and in person, face-to-face. Agendas are created in partnership with the community, and each meeting features an open space for questions as well as an update on actions agreed at previous meetings.

Healthy Harrow - Overview of the programme of work

Healthy Harrow is an overarching health and wellbeing programme approach to tackling inequalities, communicating and engaging with our residents, promoting health and wellbeing to help support communities to maintain healthy lifestyles. The programme aims to establish an integrated offer, bringing together health and wellbeing programmes/services under the Healthy Harrow brand.

The Healthy Harrow programme engages with the community through a one stop health and wellbeing website on a number of wide ranging issues to reduce the inequalities experienced by Harrow residents. Builds on the strength, networks, skills and knowledge of local communities, including groups in our community that are less likely to use statutory health services by recruiting local people as volunteers Champion to promote healthy lifestyles that inspires others to take a more active role in their health.

Empowers and trains community champions to offer appropriate advice, guidance, promote healthy lifestyles, raise awareness of health services, signposting to relevant services to help reduce social and cultural stigmas that prevent people from seeking help.

The programme includes:

Maternal Health and Wellbeing Champions: Provides local parents with support from community members who share similar experiences and lifestyles. Provide a range of antenatal and perinatal health and wellbeing information in multiple languages; breastfeeding support, signposting to relevant services; and parent and baby activities.
