Are you happy with your GP services?

Healthwatch Lambeth Trustees held a seminar on transforming primary care services (dental, GPs and community pharmacists) on June 10, 2015. The seminar took place from 6pm – 8pm at the Norwood Health and Leisure Centre.
Happy with Lambeth GP services

Around 50 people including Lambeth residents, Healthwatch Lambeth Trustees, Patient Participation Groups, GPs, pharmacists, NHS Lambeth Clinical Commissioning Group and Lambeth Councillors attended the seminar. It was opened by Knights Hill Ward Councillor Jane Pickard and closed by Lambeth Council Cabinet Member for Health and Wellbeing, Councillor Jim Dickson. The seminar also gave those attending an opportunity to meet Healthwatch Lambeth Trustees, who were there to listen to Lambeth residents views.

However, the LCCG needs to ensure that the patient voice is present in the shaping of new services.
