LMC Response to Policy Exchange Publication

You may have recently seen coverage of a new report, At Your Service – A Proposal to Reform General Practice and Enable Digital Healthcare at Scale, by the think tank Policy Exchange which outlines proposals for the future of primary care. Recommendations include the phasing out of the GMS contract over 10 years, increasing the number of GPs employed by large scale providers, and a much-enhanced role for digital healthcare. The publication is noteworthy as the foreword is written by Sajid Javid, the Secretary of State for Health.  

We have prepared a response to the report covering its implications for patients, GPs, practices and PCNs, and for LMCs. We are keen to get your views on this so do email with any comments. Download the LMC response (PDF).

Mandatory Vaccinations for Healthcare Staff Revoked

The proposed requirement of mandatory vaccinations for health and social care staff, which was supposed to come into force in England on 1 April, were revoked on 15 March 2022. More details can be found on this page at gov.uk.
