In April 2016 GPs in London and across the country declared a GP State of Emergency. Our campaign to raise awareness of the pressure facing practices on a daily basis has proved very popular with over 20,000 visits to the GPSOE website since April 2016.
The Mayor recently launched his ‘Dementia Friendly London’ initiative. We fully support this work to make London a better place for people with dementia. Recently we ran our first Dementia Friends training for staff at the Londonwide LMCs’ offices.
App-based mindfulness course made available free to Londoners
Londoners can now access a free online mindfulness tool via the Good Thinking website. The website signposts individuals to independently assessed and validated resources to help deal with depression, anxiety, stress and insomnia.
We continue to be very active in promoting the interests of London GPs and practice staff on Twitter, Facebook and LinkedIn. We also support practices that are approached with media requests. You can find details of how to get support here.
All practices are now eligible to access Londonwide LMCs’ Buying Group services.
