GP Property Ltd (GPP) are delighted to support The Lewisham Care Partnership in its objectives for excellent healthcare provision and GP services in the Borough of Lewisham now and into the future.
The Lewisham Care Partnership (TLCP) was established in June 2017 and sees five primary care partnerships coming together to serve some 58,000 patients across the Borough. With a focus on future proofing patient care for residents in Blackheath, Brockley, Honor Oak, Ladywell, Lee, Lewisham Central, Rushey Green, and St John’s, the new partnership is set to provide a model for other primary care providers.
As property partners to TLCP, GPP will work together to develop modern bespoke premises to enhance the range and type of healthcare delivered by TLCP. The role of GPP is both for development and investment. The partnership with TLCP has already facilitated a sale and leaseback of Morden Hill Surgery to GPP, allowing equity release to property owning partners. The sale and leaseback also provides for the eventual replacement of Morden Hill with modern fit for purpose premises, which will enable a much greater variety of services for patients.
GPP will work with TLCP to devise an Estate Strategy to facilitate the development of new modern premises to replace those that are nearing the end of their useful working period. The new developments will respond to the agenda for greater services to be delivered in primary care, making those services more accessible to patients in primary care rather than having to make separate trips to hospital.
GPP believe it is vital to partner with new GP led organisations like TLCP in order to make primary care property truly responsive to changes in commissioning and to realise the desire for more services and greater access to services in primary care.
