Media and public affairs round-up

image

On 16 June Dr Elliott Singer, LMC Medical Director for North East London, appeared on Sunday Politics London, talking about the challenge of practice closures (20:40 into this episode). We also arranged a practice visit for Channel 5 News who covered this story on 31 May. On 29 May we were quoted in Pulse and GPonline regarding Bablyon GP at Hand’s application to be a PCN. On 24 May Dr Michelle Drage, our Chief Executive, was quoted in Pulse, GPonline and the BMJ following the release of the independent evaluation of Babylon GP at Hand.

We continue to be very active in promoting the interests of London GPs and practice staff on Twitter, Facebook and LinkedIn. If you have an example of general practice doing something well which could make a news story please get in touch. We also support practices that are approached with media requests. You can find details here.
