​Help name the new health centre for Dulwich and south Southwark

It's time to name the new NHS health centre for Dulwich and south Southwark – and we want your suggestions. 

NHS Southwark Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) is asking NHS staff who will be based in the new building, residents and patients in south Southwark to help choose and approve a permanent name for the new community health centre.

Launching today (Thursday 20 June), the first stage of the naming process invites NHS staff and patients in south Southwark (Dulwich, Peckham, Nunhead and Camberwell) to suggest potential names.

To enter, simply go to and follow the on-screen instructions.

Entries close at 11am on Monday 15 July, after which all ideas will be considered by a judging panel, which will select the four most suitable.

These final four names will then be put to a wider public vote later this year – with local people asked to pick their favourite.

CCG Director of Finance, Malcolm Hines, said: "The new health centre has been shaped by so many local people in Dulwich and south Southwark, and it's quite right that NHS staff and patients have the chance to choose its permanent name.

"Please be as creative as you like, but do please bear in mind that the final name needs to be suitable for an NHS community health centre. Remember, the top four will be put to a public vote so that local people make the final decision.

"Good luck – we look forward to reading your entries!"
