Media and public affairs round-up

image

On 19 October, Dr Elliott Singer, one of our Medical Directors, spoke to Pulse about an incident of staff abuse in North East London. On 15 October the BMA used one of our case studies in an article on abuse of practice staff.

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.

 

Got a story? Email us at comms@lmc.org.uk.
Deadline for next month's submissions is Friday 19 November.
