Long term conditions
The practice portal will be taken down over the next few months following the launch of the combined practice and staff intranet.
For up to date information please register for the intranet. Details are available to practice staff via the GP bulletin.
Our integrated care health programme for long term conditions aims to improve the ‘care experience’ for Lambeth residents so they may live healthier and more independent lives. We aim to do this by coordinating systems and pathways more effectively – across physical, psychological and mental health - so that services fit around the needs of patients, rather than expecting patients to fit around the way our services are organised.
We are working to identify people’s care needs earlier and take action to avoid people being admitted to hospital unnecessarily.
More details about long terms conditions can be found on the Southwark and Lambeth Integrated Care (SLIC) website.
