To provide an agile response to the emerging coronavirus pandemic, in early 2020 Newham Health Collaborative launched a Single Point of Information (SPI) hub for general practice staff.  Centred around a dynamically-updated page hosted on GP TeamNet, the SPI service includes guidance updates, current information on health and social care services in Newham, recordings of webinars and other key information-sharing events, and advice and support for practices on a range of issues such as:

  • The COVID Vaccination Programme
  • Public and staff coronavirus testing
  • Hot hubs
  • Home monitoring
  • PPE
  • Hardware and software support for remote working

Staff who are registered users from our member organisations can access the SPI site at bit.ly/NewhamSPI (GP TeamNet account required).

For additional support, staff can contact NHC by phone on 020 3688 2385 or by email at nhc@nhs.net.
