Cyber Essentials is a government and industry supported scheme to help organisations protect themselves against common cyber-attacks. The award of a Cyber Essentials certificate to Londonwide LMCs should assure you that we have taken all necessary steps to protect our systems against cyber-attacks.

We know how important a good website is in communicating with our GPs and practice teams. As our current site has been around for some time we would like your views on how it looks and works and where you think improvements might be made.
Media and public affairs round-up
The Pulse Power 50 list came out at the beginning of this month; Londonwide LMCs’ CEO Dr Michelle Drage jumped up three spots to 22. Londonwide LMCs was also mentioned in a Pulse article on the audit of patient letters lost by NHS Shared Business Services. On social media we shared resources for Organ Donation Week, Migraine Awareness Week, Sexual Health Week and Suicide Prevention Day.
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.
