key partners include local people and patients, Greenwich GP practices, Royal Borough of Greenwich, independent contractors, Lewisham and Greenwich Healthcare
Trust, London Ambulance Service, the Department of Health, Health and Wellbeing Boards and Healthwatch Greenwich
Our main local hospital is Queen Elizabeth Hospital in Woolwich, which is one of two hospitals run by Lewisham and Greenwich Healthcare Trust.
