Founded in 1994 out of a local GP cooperative, London Central and West Unscheduled Care Collaborative (LCW UCC) has evolved into one of London's largest and most successful providers of Integrated Urgent Care services (incorporating 111 and GP OOH) covering a resident population of around 3.5 million. In 2014 LCW became a Certified Social Enterprise/Community Benefit Society providing further assurance that LCW funds are spent solely on delivering and improving services to patients.
LCW is a consistently high performer in all aspects of service delivery as well as other patient safety initiatives and compliance with best practice and statutory regulation. We were the first London provider to go live with a 24/7 Integrated Urgent Care service. We pride ourselves on the ability to innovate and collaborate and have supported many NHS England and local technology and workforce pilots within the development of Integrated Urgent Care.
If you really want to make a difference and are interested in joining part of our patient focussed team, please follow the link to view our current vacancies.
We have a variety of non-clinical vacancies which include working in several patient-facing services such as 111. If you are interested in becoming part of our inclusive team, please click on the link below. (NHS jobs)
Training and Development
All our staff receive a comprehensive induction programme which includes a corporate and role specific induction. We provide our staff with in-depth training materials, as well as the most relevant course content for their roles; recently we have successfully applied a blended learning approach to our training programme for 111 Call Advisors.
In addition to the above training we offer training to all our GPs, this includes:
- Yearly safeguarding updates
- Yearly Basic Life Support updates
- Monthly Peer Support Groups to discuss cases and learning points
- Regular webinars for updates.
This is regularly reviewed in quarterly supervisor meetings to develop the year's education plan.
