London is the first place in the country to offer people access to a GP evenings and weekends, seven days a week, and the first place in the country to offer NHS Online, a new way for people to access NHS services.
We don’t do any of this by ourselves.
We were set up three years ago to deliver Better Health for London and the NHS Five Year Forward View on behalf of the NHS in London. We have been changing over the years so we work with, and for everyone!
