Commissioning of GP services in Southwark

The Primary Care Joint Committees of the six Clinical Commissioning Groups (CCGs) in south east London* and NHS England will meet in public to discuss the planning, commissioning and contracting of general practice services at 6pm on Thursday, 6 August 2015.

Primary Care Joint Committees are committees of the local CCG Governing Body and NHS England who have formally agreed to commission local general practice services. 

Whilst each CCG focuses on its local borough-based services, the six CCGs in south east London have agreed to work together with NHS England, as the contract holders for general practices, and meet to:

  • Plan primary medical services (including carrying out and responding to local needs assessments)
  • Review and seek to improve and support the development of local general practice
  • Manage and ensure the commissioning of good quality services within the budgets available to pay for them
CCGs and NHS England recognise the importance of high quality, safe and accessible primary care services and are committed to working together to secure them locally.

The second meeting of the Southwark committee will be held in public together with the other five borough committees in south east London on:
Thursday 6 August 2015
6pm and 8pm
Charlton Athletic Football Club
The Valley, Floyd Road, London, SE7 8BL 
These are meetings held in public and members of the public are invited to attend. Questions can be submitted in advance by emailing by midday on 5 August 2015.
* The six CCGs in south east London are: NHS Bexley CCG, NHS Bromley CCG, NHS Greenwich CCG, NHS Lambeth CCG, NHS Lewisham CCG and NHS Southwark CCG
