Armley medical practice strikes gold

Armley Medical Practice has become the first GP surgery in Leeds to be awarded a gold award under a national pilot that brings the ‘Pride in Practice’ programme to the city.

Patients across Leeds benefit from excellent care from their GP practice

Results from the latest national GP Patient Survey were published by NHS England last week; these show that patients in Leeds are positive about the care they receive from their local GP practice. To add to this positive news, for the first time 100% of GP practices in Leeds are currently rated as ‘good’ or ‘outstanding’ by the Care Quality Commission (CQC).

Changes to the commissioning of MJOG

NHS Leeds CCG currently holds the contract for the MJOG SMS text messaging service for all GP practices in Leeds on an agreement that ends in July 2019. After that, responsibility for the MJOG licences will sit with the Confederation, while the costs of texts will remain with the CCG.
