On 1 April 2020, NHS South East London Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) was established. The new CCG is made up of the previous six south east London CCGs in Bexley, Bromley, Greenwich, Lambeth, Lewisham and Southwark. Information that has been held previously by those six CCGs transferred to the new CCG on 1 April 2020. The new CCG will become the new controller for the data held by the superseded organisations.

CCGs launch Urgent Treatment Centre (UTC) procurement
10 February 2020

NHS Bexley and Greenwich Clinical Commissioning Groups (CCGs) are working together to procure or ‘choose' an organisation to deliver urgent care from Urgent Treatment Centres (UTCs) at Queen Elizabeth Hospital in Greenwich and Erith and Queen Mary’s hospitals.

The current contract to run urgent care services in Bexley and Greenwich is due to expire later this year and so there is an opportunity for both CCGs to work together and plan, buy and monitor the services jointly. Working in this way also aligns to the NHS Long Term Plan, which requires full implementation of the UTC model by autumn 2020.

The advertisement for this process is now live on the Official Journal of the European Union (OJEU) website, the home for all public sector contracts that are above a certain value.

It is anticipated that the contract will be awarded to the preferred organisation by the NHS South East London CCG governing body in May, with a formal announcement expected to be made in June. The new service will formally begin in October 2020.

Patients can be assured that they will continue to access urgent care from two UTCs in Bexley and from one UTC in Greenwich. 

Note: NHS South East London CCG will replace the six existing CCGs in south-east London (Bexley, Bromley, Greenwich, Lambeth, Lewisham and Southwark) from 1 April – read more.
