Bexley Community Co-Design Project

The South East London Clinical Commissioning Group is working with an independent company called Co-create to develop effective, long-lasting ways of involving local people and communities in health and care decision-making.

As part of this, we are looking to form a group of local people to co-design some options for Urgent Care in Bexley. This help to make sure services are meeting the needs of local people. 

What is urgent care?

You can go to an urgent treatment centre (UTC) if you need urgent medical attention, but it’s not a life-threatening situation. UTCs are open at least 12 hours a day, every day. In Bexley, there are two UTCs – at Erith & District Hospital and at Queen Mary’s Hospital in Sidcup.

How you can get involved

We are looking for local people from Bexley, Bromley and Greenwich to join virtual workshops between February and March 2022 to help shape what urgent care could look like in Bexley.

You will be part of an online group made up of 60 people, including local residents, health care professionals, service users, community services, carers and volunteers.

Together we will look at what is working well, what needs to change and think about new and hopefully better ways that Urgent Care can be delivered in Bexley.

This is an opportunity to be part of a process that builds community and creates real change.

Workshop dates 

  • Tues Feb 22nd – 2.30pm – 5pm

This project involves reimbursement. We know that local people give up their time to take part in CCG engagement activities and may incur costs. We want to ensure that no-one is left out of pocket through taking part in the work of the CCG. Please read our expense policy for more information.

If you are interested in this project but are unable to join the workshops, we will be holding drop in sessions at Erith Library on 28th February and Sidcup Library on 1st March. These sessions are open to the public – anyone can come.
