COVID-19

The Lincolnshire LMC is actively working with CCGs, NHS England, EMAS, Public Health & many other organisations regarding COVID-19.

We are part of the Primary Care Cell, Clinical Cell & Business Continuity Working Group for COVID-19.

As per our email of 16 March 2020, the LMC will not be sending out separate updates to practice’s regarding COVID-19 but will input into the daily updates sent out to practices. This decision was made by the LMC Committee to avoid duplication of emails/information & to ensure the latest information is disseminated to practices.
