Our Vision, Values and Objectives

Central London Healthcare (CLH) is the GP federation for the General Practices in Westminster.

 

Central London Healthcare has an elected Executive Board of Directors which is made up of GPs,

Practice Managers and Practice Nurses from member practices as well as a patient representative.

Each Central London General Practice has an elected representative on the CLH council who attends

the Council of Members Meeting.

 

We believe our GP federation brings together the strong values of local general practices with the advantages of

working at scale and the ability to collaborate on services which cannot practically be provided in smaller settings.

 

Additionally, this is positive for skill sharing, interpersonal learning and the dissemination of best practice.

 

This will ensure the delivery of excellence in General Practice.

 

We want to be recognised as a leading GP provider network, run by clinicians for the benefit of our local population. We will achieve this by working with patients and partners to ensure that general practice remains sustainable and independent.
