List Management Guidance
Created: 25 November 2016 Last updated: 01 December 2016
This guidance is intended to help practices to ensure the safe provision of core services to patients, while fulfilling their professional duty and contractual obligations. GMS and PMS practices in circumstances of unmanageable workload demands, may need to take steps to safely control their list.
The list management section of the Quality First document provides practices with further guidance on list management such as information on formal list closure and informal temporary suspension of patient registration.
