To date there have been no explicit discussions about the CCG mergers at the London Health Board.

I wrote to the Regional Director of NHS London last year about the proposed mergers and outlined my expectation that plans should demonstrate that the mergers will have a positive impact on health outcomes and the delivery of my Health Inequalities Strategy and that patients will remain at the heart of decision making. Future arrangements should at least maintain, and ideally strengthen, patient and public voice and influence over health and care service provision.
