Lambeth Clinical Effectiveness Group
The Lambeth Clinical Effectiveness Group (LCEG) has been developed by the GP Federation with grant funding from Guys and St Thomas’ Charity. The LCEG includes representation from Lambeth GP Federation, Primary Care Networks, NHS Lambeth CCG, Public Health, Lambeth Together Leadership and the Patient Participant Group Network.
The Group is improving health outcomes of patients by changing the way staff teams in GP practice do things. Lambeth patients will benefit from GPs working differently utilising technology and data, which have not been available to them, until now.
LCEG will make sure that every patient in Lambeth, no matter where they live, will receive the same level of world class health care.
There are over 17,000 people with diabetes in Lambeth and we see more people diagnosed with type 2 diabetes at a younger age related to the ethnic mix of our local population. There has already been considerate local improvement in diabetes care in Lambeth, however we can still achieve more through LCEG with a consistent approach to diabetes care.
LCEG will allow GP practices to identify people at risk of developing long term conditions such as diabetes, asthma, etc as well as increasing the amount of people that we identify with undiagnosed diabetes.
LCEG will use diabetes as a prototype to produce similar improvements on all different aspects of health. If you would like to find out more on the work LCEG is doing please follow us on Twitter @LCEG_Lambeth.
