Campaign: general practice is open
Through October we have been running a social media video campaign to show GP practices are open to patients who need to be seen in person and to encourage more people to seek help for cancer symptoms.
|Also this month…|
NHS Mail for sessional GPs
|Sessional GPs are reminded they can now register for an NHS email account or request to have practice specific NHS branding removed from their NHS mail account if they have changed where they work.|
Health and Social Care Select Committee pandemic report
|Parliament’s Health and Social Care Select Committee has taken evidence on problems with the primary/secondary care interface, testing, treatment backlogs and cancer diagnosis, among other areas as part of its investigations into pandemic, and post-pandemic care.|
Remember to use BEAM to LMC to highlight the pressure you are under
|Our BEAM to LMC mobile app, which enables you to tell us about the pressures you are under from commissioners and others, is proving popular. Make sure you check the app for push notifications.|
Media and public affairs round-up
|On 7 October Dr Michelle Drage, our CEO, was quoted in the Independent, Telegraph, Metro and numerous other publications, following on from a Pulse story on practice closures which Michelle was also quoted in. On 1 October, Kathryn Yates, our Director of Primary Care Nursing and Workforce, Training and Innovation was quoted in Management in Practice speaking about our General Practice Management Training Programme.|
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.

Deadline for next month’s submissions is 11 November.
