Safeguarding reports covered under CNSGP

Following further discussions on some of the finer definitions of the scope of Clinical Negligence Scheme for General Practice, it has been agreed with DHSC and NHS Resolution that the compiling of safeguarding reports for NHS patients will now be included within scope. It was initially thought that as these reports can be chargeable under collaborative fees arrangements they should be deemed to be private work and therefore out of scope. However, lobbying from the BMA extended an alternative view of these statutory reports as being reimbursed by the system rather than a private service to patients. This perspective has been accepted by DHSC and NHSR and therefore actions originating from the completion of safeguarding reports after 1stApril 2019 will be covered by CNSGP.

Joint letter to PM on practice premises funding

The GPC have written a letter to the Prime Minister (attached here), co-signed by the RCGP, Patients Association, the National Association of Primary Care and the Family Doctor Association, calling for urgent action to ensure that vital capital funding is allocated for primary care premises. View the joint primary care letter to Boris Johnson here.

Nottinghamshire GP Phoenix Programme Practice Manager Peer Appraisals
NHS England has provided some funding to train local managers to become peer appraisers. The training, which has been organised by the Phoenix Programme, is taking place in September after which time, the new appraisers will be available to start offering appraisals.

The Phoenix Programme has created a short survey to find out who would like to take advantage of an appraisal by a peer in the next few months. Please complete the survey by 9 September. If you would like an appraisal, you will be initially contacted by the Phoenix Programme team to match you to an appraiser who will then get in touch to arrange the date/time of the appraisal.
