If by attending, your practice opening offer would need to be a skeleton one, Newham Health Collaborative will be able to provide the telephone cover for the period of 2:30pm-6:30pm with a same day urgent care offer – this means that your telephone lines will be transferred to NHC from no earlier than 2:30pm. 

To arrange this cover please email Newham Health Collaborative nhc@nhs.net and ICB team nelondonicb.tnwprimarycare@nhs.net by no later than by 5pm on Wednesday the 25th January.

NHC will cover the telephones until 6:30pm, but they cannot transfer your phone service to your out of hours provider – so you will need someone in your team to do this at your practice at 6:30pm to complete this task.

NHC call handlers will complete an initial triage when taking each call and patients will be referred to one of our Urgent Care GPs who will provide a telephone consultation. If an urgent face to face appointment is needed, the patient will be offered an appointment at our UTC divert service Essex Lodge. Please do not signpost your patients to Essex Lodge if attending the PLT session.

Practices should plan for a skeleton service at their premises and patients should be able to access the practice to collect prescriptions, etc.

If you are aware of a member of your practice team who has not received the email invitation, please advise Johanna North on Johanna.North1@nhs.net who will be happy to ensure that their details are added to the circulation list.
