Guy's and St Thomas' NHS Foundation Trust has signed a controversial partnership deal with Sainsbury's which will see the supermarket chain take over outpatient pharmacy services at the two hospitals.
Southwark's regeneration boss says that the long-awaited deal between the council, Transport for London and the Greater London Authority over the future of the Elephant & Castle's northern roundabout and tube station could be just a couple of months away.
Southwark's cabinet has endorsed plans to spend £44.5 million provided by the developers of prime riverside sites to build 286 new homes across the borough by the end of 2015.
This week a new lollipop lady - or school crossing patrol attendant - started work in St George's Road near the site of a recent collision which left a five-year-old boy dead.
120 year 7 pupils from St Saviour's and St Olave's Girls' School at Bricklayers Arms have spent the week in North Wales taking part in an Outward Bound course funded by money raised in last month's sponsored abseil down the Shard.
