Our approach to engagement​


We are part of the NHS. In partnership with Lewisham Council we plan and buy (commission) health and social care services for people in the borough of Lewisham. This includes hospital services, GP practices, mental health services and community care.

Our role is to use money available to meet the needs of the people living in Lewisham in the best possible way. To do this we need to talk to local people, to hear about how they live their lives, what affects them, inspires them and what all of it means for the type of services we commission.
