Dr Adrian McLachlan

GP and Clinical Lead for Lambeth Living Well Network Alliance

Adrian is a Lambeth GP, Clinical Lead in Lambeth for Living Well Network Alliance and Primary Care and Clinical Lead on South East London Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) Governing Body.

Born and lived most of his life locally, Adrian trained at King’s College Hospital and has been a partner in Hetherington Group Practice for over 30 years.

Adrian has always had an interest in inclusion health and homelessness, and believes that integrated services that work for the most disadvantaged are likely to work for everyone. He continues to work supporting high quality homeless services locally and at South East London and London levels.

Adrian has been part of the Lambeth Living Well Collaborative from its start, from which has developed our Living Well Network Alliance. His areas of clinical interests include Mental Health, Addictions and Dermatology, and he’s also trained in Acupuncture, although find less time to use this now.

Between 2013 to 2020, he served as Chair for NHS Lambeth CCG, connecting with system leadership through an interest in informatics.

He was part of the team that rolled out the Local Care Record (LCR) across Hetherington Group practices, large provider trusts, community services and local authorities, going on to win an award (Best Use of IT to Support Integrated Healthcare Services) in 2016, but more importantly, making a difference to working lives and improving safety and effectiveness for patients.

Adrian recognises that teamwork has been central to his working life, with colleagues in practice, CCG, homeless teams, Lambeth Living Well Collaborative, Lambeth Together and more.

He’s a life long lover of big bikes, evolving over recent years to be a cyclist.
