Content on the NCL GP website can be accessed by organisations outside NCL ICB, and by the public. If you have any sensitive content that needs to be uploaded, it is your (the submitter's) responsibility to contact the website team to get appropriate measures in place to protect access to that information. This can restrict access to registered logged-in users only, or require access via the NHS secure N3 network.
Our aim is to have the most up-to-date NCL GP Website that we can reasonably provide, where information is accessible to users 24/7. A weekly email (called the NCL GP Weekly Bulletin) is sent to registered users each week (on a Wednesday) to nudge users to read significant updates made in the past week.
Once the NCL GP Website team receives a request to update/add content on the NCL GP Website, it will be acted on as soon as possible. Tasks should be picked up for action within three working days, and the team will contact the contributor once the work is complete.
To ensure that the content you submit to the NCL GP Website is seen by the correct audience, we need to ask you some questions. That is why we ask you to follow the submission processes outlined below.
Jobs at practices and roles for practice staff at NCL ICB can be included on the website as external links to either NHS Jobs, Indeed or RCGP on our Practice Vacancies page. There is a job advert submission template. Once you have filled in all the sections, rename the file to include the job title and then email it to the NCL GP Website Team.
There is a submission template for getting news onto the website. Once you have filled in all the sections, rename the file to include the news title and then email it to the NCL GP Website Team. The NCL GP Website is for healthcare professionals only. It is not intended for public use. Please don't submit information that is intended for patients as they are not our audience.
Please note: News items only remain live on the website for two months from publication date. If your information is about a more permanent change to information hosted in any of the sections on the NCL GP Website, please email your changes directly to the website team, including a link to the page to be updated. You can also use the online submit a service feature to send in change to pages that you curate.
There is a submission template for getting events aimed at healthcare professionals and practice staff onto the website. Once you have filled in all the sections, rename the file to include the event title and then email it to the NCL GP Website Team. We do not publish listings for paid-for events. There may be some exceptions for subsidised places, so please contact the NCL GP Website team directly before submitting.
Please note: The following deadlines apply to event listings.
- To ensure your event is included in the next NCL GP Weekly Bulletin, please submit your event a minimum of two weeks before the event date.
- Events submitted one week before the event date will be added to the event listings only.
- Events submitted less than one week in advance of the event date will not be listed.
There is an online form registered users can use to either:
- Submit a new service for inclusion on this website
- Update an existing service on this website.
Once you complete all sections of the form, the website team will review, then publish it.
In order to use the online form, you must have an NHS or GOV.UK email address. If you do not, please download the submit a service paper form and once completed, email it to the NCL GP Website Team.
Please note: NCL GPs in one or more NCL boroughs must be able to refer to the service, or patients in NCL must be able to self refer, and NCL commissioners or clinical leads may be asked to review any service proposed for inclusion.
The NCL GP Website Pathways section is for clinical pathways detailing how to manage patients only.
NCL ICB has a clinical pathways team to support clinical pathway development and document formatting, and a governance process to support this activity.
If you have a clinical pathway that you would like to help develop and publish, then please contact the pathways team.
If you wish to add a referral pathway to the website, please email the NCL GP Website team directly and ask for it to be added to the relevant topic page.
If you have a new referral form, or a form update, for a service featured on the NCL GP Website, please email the NCL ICB IT and Systems team. The IT and Systems team will work with you to create an EMIS-compatible form and will liaise with the NCL GP Website team to get the necessary information uploaded on the website.
If you wish to submit an enhanced service to be listed on the NCL GP Website, please read and complete the template document and email it and the current specification to the NCL GP Website Team.
Please note: You must include the enhanced service specification as a download in your email.
If you wish to submit an operational quarter end/payment deadline, or similar, to be listed on the NCL GP Website calendar, please read and complete the template document and email it to the NCL GP Website Team.
If you wish to submit a video to be listed on the NCL GP Website, please read and complete the template document and email it to the NCL GP Website Team. NCL commissioners or clinical leads may be asked to review any video proposed for inclusion.
Please note: Videos on the NCL GP Website are required to undergo a mandatory annual review to ensure that their content is still accurate and current. If the NCL GP Website Team does not receive a review within the specified time frame, the video will be removed.
