STRUCTURE: A single commissioning consortium containing three locality groups is emerging in Lambeth.

The localities, developed from practice based commissioning structures, are North Lambeth, Clapham Health, and South East Lambeth and Streatham.

They are in the process of selection and election of leadership roles.

The primary care trust is spending £678,103 on support this year, and plans to pass all Lambeth Business Support Unit staff to the consortium from April. It is developing plans for delegation to consortia.
