Covid-19 - Supporting Safe Care In General Practice - A Londonwide LMCs Living Guide

Our most comprehensive guide to date covers protecting staff and patients from Covid-19 exposure, symptoms, complications and monitoring, maintaining essential services and death certification.

CEO announcement on move to Covid-19 focus

We are now focussed on providing support on Covid-19 issues. LMCs will remain supported via their listservers and where locally needed, virtual meetings.

Call-out for remote consulting resources


If you are a GP with extensive experience of remote consulting we are urgently looking for instructional videos to explain how to safely conduct a number of examinations via phone or video.
