NHS Southwark Clinical Commissioning Group and Healthwatch Southwark are jointly organising an engagement event on access at general practice taking place 5.45 - 8.30pm on Tuesday 5 December at Cambridge House.   

You will be able to find out what Healthwatch Southwark found out when they looked at GP appointment systems in Southwark, what their recommendations are and hear what the CCG is doing to support practices to improve access for patients.  Further information is on the flyer.

This event follows on from previous engagement events that the CCG has organised as part of its role for improving quality in general practice in April 2017.  You can read a report of this meeting here.   We also held discussions at the locality patient participation group meetings in March 2017 on quality and general practice services.  

The engagement event in October 2016 was about the CCG taking on more responsibility for planning and decision making about local GP services. This is called co-commissioning and the CCG took on fully delegated responsibility for joint commissioning of GP services on 1 April 2017. You can read the report of what people said and what people thought important here.
