Lewisham and Greenwich NHS Trust (LGT) was formed on 1 October 2013. The Trust provides NHS services for local people in Lewisham, Greenwich, Bexley and other parts of South East London.
We are responsible for NHS services at:
- Lewisham Hospital
- Queen Elizabeth Hospital in Greenwich
- 11 different health centres in Lewisham
In addition, we provide some services at Queen Mary’s Hospital in Sidcup.
Why the New Trust Was Formed
Lewisham Healthcare and Queen Elizabeth Hospital serve similar communities and have much in common in terms of what we do. By building on strengths of teams in Lewisham and Greenwich we can create an outstanding Trust.
Queen Elizabeth Hospital used to be part of South London Healthcare, which had financial difficulties, while Lewisham Healthcare NHS Trust had a good record of remaining within budget. The NHS faces challenges in the future which the new Trust will be better able to meet as part of a larger organisation.
The Department of Health and local NHS commissioners are providing funding so Lewisham and Greenwich NHS Trust can provide safe and sustainable services. The Trust is not inheriting any historic debts from South London Healthcare and additional financial support is being provided for Queen Elizabeth Hospital’s PFI debts.
