Template letter: trust request for non-contractual task(s)

  • Template letters

This letter explains that due to extreme workforce pressures GPs are prioritising work that falls within their Contract and are unable to take on secondary care work, it goes on to ask that the trust undertake the activities requested themselves and contact the patient to say they will be doing so. The main areas covered are:

  • Prescribe medication
  • Arranging investigations
  • Follow-up results
  • Undertake monitoring
  • Issue MED3 certificate
  • Refer patient back

Our thanks to Cambridgeshire LMC and Dr Katie Bramall-Stainer, their CEO, for collaborating with other LMCs to give more GPs access to this document.
