This is a really helpful document Workload Prioritisation
If you start to approach the point of potential practice closure please ensure you contact your CCG Primary Care Team for advice and guidance as well as the LMC office.
We recommend that your surgery doors should be closed to patient footfall and that you operate a model of telephone triage first. An overwhelming majority of consultations and need can be addressed remotely. A tiny minority of patients may need to come into the surgery on an invitation-only basis for a defined appointment and reason.
Appointments should be called by admin teams to advise that they may be subject to cancellation or rescheduling and will take place remotely wherever possible. A poster to help you designed by CAMS LMC can be downloaded here
