Merger of Back Office Services and NHS Contracts
The Lewisham Care Partnership has been formed in June 2017
Part of the original business case was to merge our contracts over time. This was endorsed by the CCG and the London Borough of Lewisham Healthier Communities Select Committee also had sight of this proposal.
Due to lease expiry Brockley Road site closed last March 2020 and merged with Hillyfields.
We are now proposing to continue the rationalisation of our NHS contracts and back office functions over the coming months.
The proposal is as follows :
- Stage 1 - St Johns / Morden Hill - January/February 21
- Stage 2a- stage 1 merge with Belmont Hill -April/May 21
- Stage 2b- Honor Oak/ Hillyfields - April/May 21
- Stage 3 - stages 2a/2b merge July-Sept 21
After stage 3 the 5 sites will functions as one GP contract with the NHS.
This will not affect patients services but allow more efficiencies in our back office functions.
The mergers will enable us to carry out administrative tasks just ONCE rather than FIVE times
We are not proposing to close any sites
There will be limited staff movement resulting from these proposals
Once all stages are completed patients will be able to attend any of our sites.
There is a dedicated email address for any queries Lewccg.email@example.com
