LSHP is pleased to be supporting CHP with the Primary Care Data Gathering Programme.

This national programme, managed by Community Health Partnerships (CHP) on behalf of NHSI/E, will deliver a baseline of consistent data for every NHS reimbursed GP practice across England, with a nationally prescribed process and methodology for STPs/ICS’ to maintain it. The project is due to be completed by the end of 2021.

Data fields relating to estates and service operations have been identified which will be collected by LSHP covering: property location, work force, room types and usage, PCN boundary, estate commercial attributes, running costs and 3 facet surveys (physical condition, statutory compliance, and functionality - where already held).

The data will support PCNs and ICS’ in ensuring that current and future investment in primary care estate aligns with long and short-term strategic aspirations through data driven reasoning. Outputs from the national data collection will be accessed by primary care commissioners and visually displayed in SHAPE to further support local planning and investment requests.


The charity fundraiser, organised by Southport Auto Centre, brought together a classic car and motorcycle display at the Southport Centre for Health & Wellbeing. The event raised funds for the Macmillan Cancer Support and the Southport Cancer Information and Support Centre. Automobiles on show included a three-wheeled Messerschmitt bubble car, a recently restored Schofields lemonade truck, a Smokey and the Bandit car and an E-Type Jaguar.


Her Royal Highness The Princess Royal has officially opened Mersey Care's £21 million state of the art mental health facility in Southport at the start of a visit to Merseyside. LSHP provided project management services for the new hospital. It combines local mental health inpatient care and related community services on one site in Southport for the first time – replacing two old, worn out and unfit buildings.
