Southwark Health Commissioning

A GP commissioning consortium and a body that is now defunct

The Government's Health White Paper published in July 2010 proposed a fundamental shift in responsibilities and budgets for commissioning NHS healthcare and services. GPs working in groups known as consortia will lead the commissioning of most healthcare services across England. It is intended that the new GP commissioning consortia will be the statutory bodies accountable for commissioning from April 2013.[1] The GPs within each consortia are subject to FOI although the consortia themselves may not be depending on how they are constituted.

Southwark Health Commissioning was one of the "pathfinder" commissioning groups set up in advance of the main roll out of CCGs, and has now been subsumed by NHS Southwark CCG.

This authority no longer exists, so you cannot make a request to it.
