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 The new CCG will become the new controller for the data held by the superseded organisations. If you have any further questions about the use of data by NHS SEL CCG, please contact

The Quality Premium (QP)

The QP is intended to reward clinical commissioning groups (CCGs) for improvements in the quality of the services that they commission and for associated improvements in health outcomes and reductions in inequalities in access and in health outcomes.

Quality premium payments may be used by the CCG for:

  • Securing improvement in the quality of health services or the outcomes achieved from the provision of health services
  • Reducing inequalities between patients with respect to their ability to access health services or the outcomes achieved for them by the provision of health services

In 2014/15 NHS Bexley CCG was awarded £201,000 QP funding. During 2015/16 this has been spent in the following ways:

  • £54,000 – purchasing software called Web GP for six Bexley GP practices to pilot. Patients at these practices represent approximately 30 per cent of Bexley's patient population.
  • £42,000 – commissioning a report to review services at Lewisham and Greenwich NHS Trust, with a view to making improvements.
  • £35,000 – investing in work programmes to review and improve productivity across south-east London.
  • £100,000 – securing inpatient beds for Bexley residents at Greenwich and Bexley Community Hospice.
