QCovid patient assessment tool

Last week an additional 1.7m patients were identified and added to the shielding list, using the NHS’s new risk stratification software.

Integrated Care Systems, NHS legislation proposals and Standard Contract changes

Recent weeks have seen a number of NHS structural changes proposed and/or consulted on. We have responded to consultations on ICS and the NHS Standard Contract. 

NHS Property Services charges update


The BMA has successfully challenged NHSPS’ use of its charging policy as the sole basis for increasing charges to tenants.

Covid-19 insurance changes

Practices are advised to check the cover provided under insurance renewals, as some insurers are removing pandemic related claims from their cover.
