Start dates and collection arrangements will vary depending on where the practice is located, and which services are used today. Please see below for details by borough.
The first day of collections by GSG will depend on where the practice is located and the arrangements in place today. See below for specific information:
Practices in Bexley, Greenwich and Lewisham
The new GSG collection service will start for all practices on 5 September 2022. City Sprint will continue to deliver consumables until 23 October 2022, with GSG picking up this service from Monday 24 October.
Practices in Bromley
The new GSG service will replace the King’s College Hospital service on 1 November 2022. City Sprint will continue to deliver consumables until 23 October 2022, with GSG picking up this service from Monday 24 October.
Please note that the Bromley GP Alliance logistics service will continue to operate for the small number of Bromley-based practices which use this service as an alternative to the King’s College Hospital service.
Practices in Southwark, Lambeth and other users in nearby South East London
The new GSG collection service will start for all practices on 5 September 2022*. City Sprint will continue to deliver consumables until 23 October 2022, with GSG picking up this service from Monday 24 October.
*Please note that samples for some GPs practices in Southwark, Lambeth and a few others from elsewhere in south East London which fall within our pathology network are also sent to King’s College Hospital, which is covered by a different service (KCH’s own logistics service). These practices will continue to receive the KCH service as well as the new GSG service to replace City Sprint (which transports samples to laboratories based at Guy’s and St Thomas’). The KCH service will transfer over to GSG on 1 November, meaning that these practices will have only one logistics provider in future; however, please note that samples will still need to be kept separate.
