Southwark and Lambeth Integrated Care Programme

Southwark and Lambeth Integrated Care Programme is a new innovative approach to joined- up care that will transform the health of the people in Southwark.

Residents of Southwark and Lambeth will benefit from this radical new "joining up" of services across the local NHS and local authority social care – one of the first major schemes of its kind integrating care in the UK.

Southwark and Lambeth Integrated Care is made up of general practices, community healthcare, mental healthcare, local hospitals and local authority social services, meaning that a person’s whole needs can be addressed, and their journey through the health and care system is coordinated.

The purpose of Southwark and Lambeth Integrated Care is to provide better co-ordinated preventative care and to enable people to take a more active role in their own health. People will have a better experience of care, and have more support to keep healthy and maintain their independence.

Catherine McDonald, cabinet member for health and adult social care, said: "Past consultation with older people who receive social care have shown their main wishes are to have better co-ordinated care with less time in hospital and care homes and longer in their own homes.

"We’ve taken that on board and worked closely with our health care partners to create this exciting new way of working that puts people at the centre of things, ensuring we provide value for money healthcare and listening to what people want and helping them get their wish to stay in their own homes for as long as possible."
