Judicial Review rules in favour of Lewisham Council and the Save Lewisham Hospital Campaign

 

NHS Lewisham Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) welcomes the decision made today in the High Court and in particular the reference made by the Judge to Lewisham GP Commissioners being opposed to the TSA imposed service change proposals.   
 
The CCG is aware that the Department of Health has been granted permission to appeal and awaits the outcome of the legal process. The CCG's priority is to ensure that high quality, effective services, which meet local health needs continue to be provided to Lewisham residents in both hospital and community settings.
