About the pilot

The sudden passing of a friend or colleague can be a difficult and traumatic experience, which may be made harder to cope with given the pressures of continuing to run a busy general practice. 

This pilot proposal, funded by NHS England, will support a small number of practices in the immediate period following the sudden death of a key member. In this instance, a key member refers to a partner or practice manager whose impact on the practice is considered to be critical.

The RCGP have selected a small team of advisers from our Primary Care Development programme and trained them to provide practical operational support and be a voice for the practice as they navigate a difficult and destabilising time. This work is supported by the mental health service provided by Practitioner Health.

This support is provided at no cost to the practice.
