Coronavirus (COVID-19)

Novel coronavirus (COVID-19) is a new strain of coronavirus first identified in Wuhan City, China. It is a new respiratory illness which affects lungs and airways that has not previously been seen in humans. Generally, coronavirus can cause more severe symptoms in people with weakened immune systems, older people, and those with long-term conditions like diabetes, cancer and chronic lung disease.

We have developed a 'Primary Care Business Continuity Considerations' checklist to guide our GP Practices to a robust and comprehensive Business Continuity Plan to cope with the COVID-19 pandemic. We will continually update this checklist as new guidance is published from NHSE and NCL. Please feel free to use and share this checklist with your colleagues if you find it a useful resource.
