Health bosses have outlined problems in a report
PEOPLE in south east London are being asked for their views on healthcare in the area.
Health chiefs have produced a report outlining some of the issues with the healthcare system, including care of variable and sometimes poor quality, treatment that is too slow, and lack of funding.
Other issues include not enough being done to prevent health problems, pressures on social care and different parts of the care system not talking to each other.
The report has been produced by the six south east London clinical commissioning groups – Bexley, Bromley, Greenwich, Lambeth, Lewisham and Southwark – and national health chiefs.
They are working with councils, hospitals, mental health services, community care services, Bexley Healthwatch groups and patients to come up with ways to improve healthcare – and want as many people to give their views as possible.
