Our Message to Practices in the Humber Area

Publication date: September 2020

Humberside LMCs would like to thank all practices for their continued hard work in meeting unprecedented demand in primary care, and in the face of demoralising media coverage in response to NHS England's letter reiterating the importance of providing face-to-face appointments for those who need them.

We know that face-to-face appointments have been available to patients throughout the pandemic where there is a clinical need. We wholly reject any implication that practices are not seeing patients and subsequent negative stories in the media. 

Should your practice be in need of additional support, please contact the LMC or visit the support page on our website for information, links and resources.
