Official studies: BAME people at increased risk from Covid-19

PHE has produced a two-part report which suggests BAME people are at disproportionate risk from Covid-19, with a number of contributing social factors.

TFL face covering exemption

Londoners can now print off and display cards which say they are exempt from wearing face coverings on public transport without any input from their GP.

Resumption of CQC activity


The CQC will resume routine inspections in the autumn, practices who have not participated in the emergency support framework monitoring regime may receive follow-up inspections at this point.

Report referral management issues via our app

In response to feedback from practices we have added a category for ‘referral management’ issues to our Beam to LMC app. Use Beam to report problems with bureaucracy.
