GMS Digital Guidance 2017-18
NHS England and the General Practitioners Committee (GPC) continue to work together to develop high quality secure electronic systems and pro-actively encourage patients and practices to use them.

We have continued this approach for 2017/18 having agreed a number of non-contractual joint working arrangements - a summary is at Annex 1 below. The Joint General Practitioners Information Technology Committee (JGPITC) will be the main forum for this work, which will be ongoing throughout 2017/18. Link to full document
