In line with our future name as an authorised Clinical Commissioning Group, and improving content and appearance, we are moving to a new site, www.lambethccg.nhs.uk
This site will remain as an archive. The new site will have all the important content from before, with new content, presented in a way that should be easier to navigate.
Registration is now open for the next All Practice Event as follows:
17 July 2012
12.00 -1.00pm – Lunch
1.00 – 4.00pm – Main Agenda
Help to shape Clinical Commissioning in Lambeth, with an opportunity to discuss:
- What is a Constitution?
- How should the local elections be run?
- Who should be responsible for the commissioning budget?
- What does it mean for my practice?
- How will it be relevant to patient care?
SELDOC Cover Available – 12.00pm-6.30pm

This has been published at an early stage to raise awareness of the type of information that will be included in the constitution.
We are keen that this developed into a document that is owned by practices and are therefore seeking practice input on a range of key issues, including:
A. Roles and responsibilities and scale of delegation to member practices/localities/governing body (the board) e.g. it is proposed that the first delegation is for members to the governing body (effectively the Board) for nearly all things to allow effective delivery of the CCG duties. What is what might be reserved to members – i.e. clinical board member appointment, constitution.
B. How should elections (e.g. to board) be managed e.g. one practice = one vote, or one vote per performer on list, or one vote per 1000 registered population at practice (as per SELDOC)?
C. Are there conditions on practice membership e.g. in Lambeth boundary? Should there be expectations on members eg code of conduct, active participation in discussions? If so, what would be expected?
D. How do members want to be engaged? e.g. a minimum of two all practice events a year plus regular locality engagement
E. how should potential conflicts of interest be managed?
F. What should be the role of the LMC?
We’d be keen to have your views at the all practice event on 17th July, or in writing to firstname.lastname@example.org
The consultation on the outcomes for the new integrated primary care talking therapies service took place late last year. The findings from the consultation were widely circulated in February and the Talking Therapy Tender Board would like to make the document available via the internet.
The document contains details of:
- The various formats available to participate in the consultation
- Who participated in the consultation and the feedback they provided
- How the feedback influenced the development of the service specification
- A number of organisations responded and their responses are included, unabridged, in the attached document.

NICE published new guidance relating to hypertension in August 2011.
In April, Lambeth & Southwark held two education events, which were attended by 50 clinicians and managers across Lambeth and Southwark. The events briefed clinicians on the key changes and implications for both diagnosis and management of hypertension. The sessions included a case study based discussions presented by a range of clinicians.
