North Tyneside CCG, following an evaluation exercise, has extended the Livi pilot contract while it procures a ‘Complementary GP Video Consultation Service’ for North Tyneside. The timescales for procurement have not yet been finalised given the changes in CCG’s and Integrated Care System. Details of the procurement timeline will be published on the website once it has been confirmed.
The approach has been supported by the Local Medical Committee (LMC) noting that this needs to happen alongside a wider piece of workforce and transformation work in general practice. Our commitment remains, to work together to ensure that the residents of North Tyneside consistently have timely access to health services seven days a week to meet their health needs. A key part of this is to ensure consistent timely access to see a GP where the majority of initial contacts in the health service happen.
