Comment or complain


We do all we can to provide good quality health services, but sometimes things don’t go as they should. We welcome people telling us about how we can improve, or make a complaint about the service they have received from Lambeth CCG.

We are also very pleased to receive positive feedback and compliments about our work or the quality of health services you have received as a local resident.
