The Lewisham Care Partnership was formed on 1st June 2017. It represents the joining of 5 local GP Partnerships delivering Primary Care Services from 6 sites in the centre of Lewisham. SE London (See list of Partners and the sites they work from).
The aim of the merger is to deliver sustainable general practices services to a population of nearly 60k patients.
In the initial stages the practices will work very much as they have done with the patients seeing very little change. Over the coming months back office functions will gradual merge in order to save money.

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.
