  2. NHSE communications pack for GP practices to help with any comms to parents on childhood immunisations. They can be tailored as practices feel appropriate to supplement what they are already doing. The pack contains a range of communications materials including a template letter and text message, website copy, social media assets and FAQs.

Practice Manager Update - 22 June 2022

NHS Digital would like to speak to general practice staff to find out more about the current process of updating patients’ address and the process of accepting/declining a request if a patient is outside of catchment. This would be done through a 30-minute interview via Microsoft Teams. If you are interested, please email to arrange a time and date that’s most convenient for you.

Future Practice Manager Updates

Our regular Practice Manager Updates will continue, on Zoom, every alternate Wednesday lunchtime 1pm to 2pm.  We will always send out a reminder email containing the link to join on the morning of the event, and also if we have to cancel or reschedule.  Please contact if you are a PM or Deputy PM and have not been receiving the regular reminders for these events.  Please Note: Once you have the link it will remain the same for all future PM Updates

Space to Thrive for Practice Managers
