South West London Collaborative Commissioning

  • Our vision

    People in south west London can access the right health services when and where they need them.

    Care is delivered by a suitably trained and experienced workforce, in the most appropriate setting with a positive experience for patients.

    Services are patient-centred and integrated with social care, focus on health promotion and encourage people to take ownership of their health. Services are high quality but also affordable.

  • Our emerging priorities

    One of our key areas of focus is on preventative and proactive care and we will need to deliver health services differently to help people stay well.

    We know we can’t solve everything at once and that we have to prioritise. We are keen to discuss with local people what our immediate areas of focus should be.

What is SWL Collaborative Commissioning?

The six south west London CCGs together with NHS England (who commission specialist and primary care services in south west London) are working together under the umbrella name of South West London Collaborative Commissioning  (SWLCC).

In 2014, following an NHS England consultation called A Call to Action a Strategic Planning Group (SPG) was set up in each NHS region in England. SWLCC is the SPG for south west London. It has responsibility for planning service change to address the challenges facing the local NHS and also for managing new initiatives such as primary care co-commissioning.

The six CCGs have now decided that they would like to continue to work together and to maintain a permanent SWLCC team to support their joint working in future.

Working together as SWLCC, the six CCGs and NHSE have developed a five-year strategy for local health services, which was published in May 2014.  You can read The 5 year strategy. here.

The NHS Five Year Forward View was published by NHS England in October 2014 and sets out a vision for the future of the NHS. It sets out why change is needed in the NHS, what that change might look like and how we can achieve it. Five Year Forward View

In June 2015, the CCGs published an Issues Paper, summarising the challenges and emerging solutions set out in the strategy and putting forward questions for local people to respond to. You can read and respond to the Issues Paper online
