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 18 September Dr Michelle Drage, our CEO, and Dr Lisa Harrod-Rothwell, our Deputy CEO, were jointly quoted in a Pulse story on plans for more digital first APMS contracts. On the same day a number of Londonwide LMCs’ staff and LMC officers were named in Pulse’s Honourable mentions piece on Coronavirus. On 9 September Michelle appear on BBC Radio London’s Eddie Nestor show to discuss the Coronavirus pandemic.
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.
