Dear Colleague

I know that pressure is mounting on practices across London. The Londonwide LMCs team and I will be working hard to support you throughout the coming days and weeks.

With CoVid-19 measures developing rapidly, and guidance and advice circulating from a range of sources, now is the time for timely and accurate information that makes it easier to cope.

From today, we will be updating London practices with key updates via email alerts. These alerts will be sent to LMC chairs daily in the early afternoon/at the end of the day and can be shared locally.

  • Covid-19: Londonwide LMCs' Guidance For Practices

    We know that this is a rapidly evolving situation. Guidance is correct at the time of publication and we have provide guidance on new measures and links to resources, but please bear in mind this might change daily.
  • Covid-19: Fit note/ Sick note guidance and template

    We know that with measures such as social distancing and self isolation being put in place there are many more patients demanding fit notes/ Med3s. The current Government guidance for employers and businesses on coronavirus (covid-19) reiterates that medical evidence is not required for the first 7 days of sickness. It adds that after 7 days, employers may use their discretion around the need for medical evidence if an employee is staying at home.

    Until further guidance is available, and as workload increases, Londonwide LMCs advise practices to upload this letter to your website and ask patients requiring a medical certificate for work relating to covid-19 to download a copy and give it to their employer.
  • Covid-19: Keeping you up to date

    The Londonwide LMCs team are regularly monitoring and reviewing changes and updates, and liaising with NHSEI, health partners and commissioners at all levels. Our website will be updated daily with covid-19 relevant developments: our covid-19 update page will be updated frequently with links to NHSEI, Government, PHE and other guidance along with key statements from Londonwide LMCs.

The goal is to help colleagues safely provide appropriate care to patients during this covid-19 pandemic. This is our overriding priority.

It goes without saying that this advice is the best available and is subject to change at short notice.

Please DO watch out for further bulletins and check in to our website daily www.lmc.org.uk/coronavirus-covid-19.

As ever I welcome your feedback at mword@lmc.org.uk, and know that my team of experts and leaders here at Londonwide LMCs will always be by your side.

With best wishes

Dr Michelle Drage MBBS FRCGP

CEO, Londonwide LMCs

CORONAVIRUS (COVID-19)  UPDATE 

The NHS in England and Public Health England (PHE) are extremely well prepared for outbreaks of new infectious diseases. The NHS has put in place measures to ensure the safety of all patients and NHS staff while also ensuring services are available to the public as normal.

If you have arrived back to the UK from any at risk countries, please visit the NHS 111 website.

Do not go to a GP surgery, community pharmacy or hospital. Visit NHS111 online, stay indoors and avoid close contact with other people.

Further information is available on www.nhs.uk

Like the common cold, coronavirus infection usually occurs through close contact with a person with novel coronavirus via cough and sneezes or hand contact. A person can also be infected by touching contaminated surfaces if they do not wash their hands.

The risk of being in close contact with a person with coronavirus or contaminated surfaces is very low at the current time, as members of the public who have visited Wuhan or Hubei province, China are currently in isolation.

Testing of suspected coronavirus cases is carried out in line with strict regulations. This means that suspected cases are kept in isolation, away from public areas of the hospital and returned home also in isolation. Any equipment that come into contact with suspected cases are thoroughly cleaned as appropriate. Specific guidance has also been shared with NHS staff to help safeguard them and others. Patients can be reassured that their safety is a top priority, and are encouraged to attend all appointments as usual.

Everyone is being reminded to follow Public Health England advice to:

  • Always carry tissues with you and use them to catch your cough or sneeze. Then bin the tissue, and wash your hands, or use a sanitiser gel.
  • Wash your hands often with soap and water, especially after using public transport. Use a sanitiser gel if soap and water are not available.
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth with unwashed hands.
  • Avoid close contact with people who are unwell.

You can find the latest information and advice from Public Health England at Further information is available on www.nhs.uk.
