Lewisham Borough Based Board

About this event

The Lewisham borough-based board has delegated responsibility for planning and funding (commissioning) services in Lewisham.

The board’s role is to ensure that decisions are taken at the right scale for delegated services and involve the council wherever possible. The board is responsible for commissioning:

  • GP services
  • Community health services (for example district nursing)
  • Services for specific patient needs (for example in mental health and services for children and young people) 
  • Medicines optimisation (for example making the best use of medicines to support community based care)
  • Continuing healthcare (for example for people with disabilities or people who are approaching the end of their lives)

The Lewisham board works closely with the borough’s Health and Wellbeing Board and the overview and scrutiny committees.

A meeting in public is held every 2 months.
