Choose Wisely for Merton


Merton CCG is required to make the best use of an annual budget to keep people in the borough of Merton well. 

During 2016/17 we have worked hard to find savings of £7.3m. Pressures on expenditure will continue to increase in 2017/18 and it's expected that the CCG will need to find at least another £13m of savings to bring the CCG back into financial balance and provide for cost increases and greater patient demand next year. This is a substantial financial challenge for a CCG of our size. 

To ensure that we live within our means in future and that everyone in Merton has equal access to operations; and that only treatments which offer value to our population are commissioned we are considering some changes to local healthcare.
