Council and CCG to set out commissioning intentions

The MPS is a joint initiative, between Adult Social Care at Lewisham Council and NHS Lewisham CCG - in collaboration with providers and wider stakeholders.

The statement summarises demand, supply and general commissioning intentions, so they can help their current and potential providers to develop the right services to meet the current and growing needs of adult residents.

The MPS is a living document, reflecting current needs and opportunities for developing a vibrant, sustainable health and care market with, and for, Lewisham people, so there are opportunities to influence it.

VAL has been invited to a meeting, along with a number of other organisations at the end of July. There will be a chance at our annual conference on Wednesday 5 July to discuss potential ways that the sector can influence health commissioning going forward.
