Primary Care Advice

A single source of information for General Practice

BNSSG CCG, the Avon Local Medical Committee and One Care are working together to ensure that our colleagues in General Practice have access to the latest COVID-19 information and updates all in one place. TeamNet is the ‘go to’ place for the latest national guidance, as well as CCG, LMC and One Care updates, templates and resources.

We are also setting up a WhatsApp broadcast group, which means we can message you with any important changes or developments. We are adding all practice manager mobile numbers to the group, and you will be able to forward the link on to colleagues. A broadcast group means there will be no replies or conversation; the group will be used purely to broadcast important updates.

If you need to talk to someone at the CCG about urgent COVID-19 support or practice issues, including potential practice closures, please call: 0117 900 2540.

For feedback or suggestions about how we communicate with you, please email us here
