Safeguarding reports and meetings

 

CCGs have recently received a letter from NHS England reminding them of their duty to fund GP time when preparing reports for safeguarding, and for attending safeguarding meetings.

The LMC is working with the CCGs to ensure that this funding is available, and that a process is developed for claiming payment. Whilst this process is being developed practices are encouraged to continue producing reports and attending meetings if requested to do so, and to record the time taken to complete this work, so that the time can be reimbursed when the process has been agreed.
