About One Health Lewisham

One Health Lewisham is the federation of all the General Practices within the London Borough of Lewisham, working collaboratively to ensure high quality, equitable, and sustainable primary care across Lewisham.

Established in 2017, One Health Lewisham is wholly owned by the GP surgeries of Lewisham, together representing over 300,000 patients. We work on behalf of practices, patients, and staff to deliver healthcare services in the community.

One Health Lewisham has grown out of four neighbourhood GP federations in the North, Centre, South-East, and South-West of the borough. Our work remains rooted in these local communities as we develop pan-Lewisham working to reduce variation and improve quality for patients, achieve economies of scale, and support practices.

Vision and values

One Health Lewisham, as part of the local accountable care system, is a trusted innovative partner within a confederal approach that demonstrably improves the lives and health of our patients whilst also reducing the whole system costs of healthcare provision.

We expect all our staff to share the values that are important to the company:

  • Equity of quality and equity of access across the whole spectrum of Lewisham
  • Protecting and sustaining general practice whilst also supporting transformation.
  • Being an organisation that is sustainable, self-sufficient, imaginative, innovative, courageous, entrepreneurial and unafraid to say “no”.
