How It All Started

Our mission is to provide a support network for the people of Southwark and Lambeth, by building a skill-sharing community. This increases respectful interaction between people living in the same area but has diverse cultures, backgrounds and abilities.

The Paxton Green Bank was founded in 2008 by Dr Brinkhurst and Dr Gemma Anson GPs, based at Paxton Green Group Practice (PGGP), who realised the need to support their isolated patients in Southwark and Lambeth.
