Clinical Effectiveness SEL

Clinical Effectiveness South East London (CESEL) provide a systematic evidence-based approach to quality improvement across south east London general practice, to help to improve health outcomes and reduce variation and inequalities for our local population.

As a collaborative endeavour across CCG and PCNs clinical effectiveness will also enhance a population health capability, ensuring front line staff have the tools and resources to provide best-practice care.

The short film below describes how CESEL can support your practice.

CESEL report (November 2022)

The report captures the activities, outputs, successes and challenges in CESEL’s first 18 months.

Hypertension Recovery Fund for Southeast London General Practice (6 September 2022)

Hypertension is the leading cause of heart disease, stroke, kidney disease, dementia and early death across southeast London, and care has been significantly impacted by the COVID pandemic.

New funding and accompanying support are available to PCNs in southeast London to enhance hypertension improvement work, to support the detection, management and reduction in inequalities in hypertension care, and support COVID recovery.

Further details are available here. The overview includes a link to an expression of interest (EOI) form, which PCNs are invited to complete if they wish to participate in the scheme.

Title: Community Pharmacy Blood Pressure Check Service (update June 2022)

CESEL is working with colleagues to support the roll out of the Community Pharmacy Blood Pressure Check Service.

People can now have a blood pressure check in pharmacies across SEL.  The service is available to anyone aged over the age of 40, with or without a confirmed diagnosis of high blood pressure, and can also be offered to under 40’s if the pharmacist thinks it is needed.  GP teams are also able to refer to the community pharmacy for blood pressure checks and ambulatory blood pressure readings.

See the Community Pharmacy Blood pressure check service page for more details and the list of participating pharmacists in your area, which maps pharmacist participation.
