Our Partnering Philosophy

We believe that patients should be at the centre of care delivery – not organisations. Partnering is an essential part of our DNA. Often patients will not even be aware that a stage of their care pathway is being delivered by LCD, and this suits us fine, as we strive to offer the seamless service they desire.

We recognise that to meet the complex needs of patients we need to work effectively with all parts of the NHS and social care – commissioners and others providers.   Here are some examples.

Commissioning Partners

LCD’s services are commissioned by Clinical Commissioning Groups (CCGs) and NHS England on a local, regional and national basis. Our Commissioners are responsible for assessing needs, planning and prioritising, purchasing and monitoring health services, to get the best health outcomes.   Our commissioners pay for all the services we provide.
