CES – Making the right thing to do the easy thing to do

Primary care professionals are busy and operate in a complex system. Our approach strives to puts the right information at professionals’ fingertips and makes it easier to follow best practice guidance, every time.

Our team of local GPs, primary care facilitators and professionals helps practices understand how they can improve outcomes through trusted, local advice and support tools.

By analysing individual practice needs our team can work with practices to identify key areas where small changes will make a big difference. We believe that Southwark primary care professionals’ time is valuable – we believe our approach makes it easier to provide high quality care.

Clinical Effectiveness Southwark offer to general practices:

  • CES Guides and EMIS Clinical Templates which synthesise and localise evidence-based best practice.
  • Meet with practices to offer tailored support to improve outcomes in primary care in Southwark.
  • Help to identify local best practice to reduce variation, improve care and  increase the benefit from local contractual incentives.
  • Is free, trusted and professional, provided by teams of local GPs and facilitators.

Our approach is inspired by the successful east London model which has delivered some of the best QOF outcomes nationally.
