IHL unites all 19 GP practices in South Southwark who work together to give patients access to a wide range of services and to the same high quality services no matter where they live or which GP practice they use.
As well as improving care for patients, we are working towards creating a more sustainable and financially viable general practice in an increasingly challenging healthcare environment.
All IHL member GP practices are shareholders in the organisation. Working together as IHL allows us to share best practice, pool resources and bid for contracts to deliver innovative healthcare at scale with a positive impact on population health. At the same time, each GP practice remains an independent entity. One of our early successes is our Extended Primary Care Service, which offers additional GP and nurse appointments from 8-8, seven days a week at the Lister Health Centre.
