​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​Primary Care Joint Committee​

Transforming Primary Care in Lewisham

Purpose of the Committee

Primary care services and particularly local GP Surgeries are the first point of contact in the healthcare system for residents.  From 1 April 2015 NHS Lewisham Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG), along with the other CCGs in south east London, has taken greater responsibility and involvement in the design, shaping and commissioning of local general practices, in a joint commissioning arrangement with NHS England.

This new arrangement will allow us to work more closely with those responsible for securing the provision of general practice, NHS England, and will support our local plans to improve primary care services in the borough.

This joint approach between our CCG and NHS England is referred to as the Co-commissioning of Primary Care and we will now begin meeting regularly in a joint committee, in public, to consider and take decisions on local services together.

The committee meetings are held in public together with the other five CCGs in south east London (Bromley, Bexley, Greenwich, Lambeth and Southwark).
