Expressions of Interest: Lead Practice for Optimising Workplace Wellbeing Project
The GP task Force are looking for a Derbyshire practice that would like to improve staff morale and quality of life through a targeted wellbeing strategy. The successful practice will be supported to educate staff about physical activity and wellbeing, create a wellbeing strategy and have help to implement changes by a local expert.
What's in it for me? Studies show that 80% of people would feel more positive towards their employer if they offered better health and wellbeing benefits. Evidence also shows reduced sickness absence, improved job satisfaction and retention when a wellbeing programme is in place.

Updated ICO guidance on SARs
The ICO have published updated guidance on Subject Access Requests for GP practices. The blog provides some practical steps that may help reduce workload in practices and re-iterates the extant guidance that many insurance companies have been trying to use SARs when they should be using the established process through the Access to Medical Reports Act 1988.
There has been some confusion with the changes to indemnity, particularly the offer from MPS. GPC Exec have sough clarification – please see the details of this here .
Nicola White (Ph.D, Research Associate) works in the Marie Curie Palliative Care Research Department at UCL. She is currently developing an online study for GPs to complete “The Surprise Study”. The UK is one of 6 countries participating in this study. The study will ask GPs to review 20 short patient summaries and provide a survival estimate in addition to what treatment option they would offer. We believe the online task will take approximately 30 minutes to complete. For their participation, GPs will receive feedback on their performance and a training certificate.
If this is something that you would be interested in then please let us know on firstname.lastname@example.org
