We understand that the proportion of revenue costs relating to the dissolution of South London Healthcare NHS Trust that is to be met by local clinical commissioning groups (CCGS) will be apportioned among the following groups:

Bexley CCG;

Bromley CCG;

Greenwich CCG;

Lambeth CCG;

Lewisham CCG; and

Southwark CCG.

Information on the respective amounts to be met by each CCG is not centrally held.

However, we are informed that the local CCGs have agreed to support the cost of the transactions from funds set aside each year for spending flexibly on non-recurrent priorities. This means that planned health care services in south London will not be adversely affected.
