Living Guide

This living document is produced by the GP medical directors of Londonwide LMCs in collaboration with clinical colleagues within the NHS system in London to guide London’s GP practices to best help our patients.

Non-acute general practice services

Key messages 

  1. The RCGP guidance lists non acute services that should be continued regardless of the scale of  the outbreak and helpfully categorises general practice services into high priority, medium priority and lower priority.
  2. Services that rely on other providers can only continue if workforce allows across all providers.

Resources to support delivery of non-acute general practice services

We have pulled together a document of resources to help support you to deliver essential non-acute general practice services. This includes:

  1. Routine vaccinations.
  2. Seasonal vaccinations.
  3. Cervical smears.
    (Note: NHS England London provided a further update on 8 June 2020 advising practices to recommence cervical smears for all patients following their instruction in March to stop the collection of cervical smear samples.)
  4. Essential injections.
  5. Postnatal checks.
  6. Contraceptive services.
  7. Drug monitoring.
  8. Long term condition management (also see our in the Long term condition clinical care resources section).
