About NHS England London

We have oversight and leadership for the NHS in London and commission more than £15bn of services for the 8.17 million people living in the capital. These include general practitioners (GP) and over 140 specialised services such as:

  • Treatment for children with congenital heart conditions
  • Cystic fibrosis treatment
  • Complex spinal surgery
  • Healthcare for those in the criminal justice system

Some NHS services in London are world class with excellent care being provided in some of the best hospitals and community settings. However, the NHS in London also faces many significant challenges including:

  • An ageing population and rising demand for services
  • More of us living with long-term conditions
  • Huge variations in quality and health outcomes
