  • Text overusage - The LMC will ask THIS to give practices regular updates so that they can monitor and control their text usage
  • MADE (Multi-disciplinary Accelerated Discharge Event)
  • Helen Barker, Chief Operating Officer CHFT, would like to visit practices to discuss the community division 
  • LMC communication - Feedback from the GDPR training was that Practice Managers should be the main conduit for the LMC to communicate with Practices. Other suggestions were that the LMC speaks with GPs at Practice Leads Meetings.
