Benefits Reform – GP letters
Cornwall & IoS Local Medical Committee (LMC) is the representative body for all GPs in Cornwall & Isles of Scilly. This letter has been produced by the LMC for use by GP practices.
The Benefits System is undergoing major changes and this is impacting on many people across the country in the amount of money they receive and also the benefits they may be eligible for.
GP’s provide General Medical Services to their patients and we are not in a position to administer nor to police the Benefits System. The LMC considers that it is not appropriate for the GP to be asked for letters of support or a letter to confirm care needs. GPs are not resourced to provide this service. Time taken up with paperwork is time taken away from direct patient care. There are contractual and agreed methods for GPs to provide medical information to the Department for Work and Pensions. These are sent to the GP practice and GP’s respond directly to the departments requesting information. Therefore we cannot respond to your request for a letter.
Please show this document to the service who has asked for the GP letter. The service can contact Cornwall& LoS LMC, Sedgemoor Centre, Priory Road, St Austell, PL25 5AS for more information.

Weight Matters is a NHS Cornwall Health Promotion Programme which has developed a self help website for adults who want to manage their own weight. The website includes a range of tools which patients and staff may find helpful to support overweight and obese individuals.
Over 50% of GP practices in Cornwall are now working with our programme to support overweight and obese patients.
Please follow the link:
There is a new Central NHS Computer System called the Summary Care Record (SCR). The Summary Care Record is meant to help emergency doctors and nurses help you when you contact them when the surgery is closed. Initially, it will contain just your medications and allergies.
Later on as the central NHS computer system develops, (known as the ‘Summary Care Record’ – SCR), other staff who work in the NHS will be able to access it along with information from hospitals, out of hours services, and specialists letters that may be added as well.
Your information will be extracted from practices such as ours and held on central NHS databases.
As with all new systems there are pros and cons to think about. When you speak to an emergency doctor you might overlook something that is important and if they have access to your medical record it might avoid mistakes or problems, although even then, you should be asked to give your consent each time a member of NHS Staff wishes to access your record, unless you are medically unable to do so.
On the other hand, you may have strong views about sharing your personal information and wish to keep your information at the level of this practice. Connecting for Health (CfH), the government agency responsible for the Summary Care Record have agreed with doctors’ leaders that new patients registering with this practice should be able to decide whether or not their information is uploaded to the Central NHS Computer System.
For existing patients it is different in that it is assumed that you want your record uploaded to the Central NHS Computer System unless you actively opt out.
For further information visit the HSCIC Website
If you choose to opt out of the scheme, then you will need to complete a form and bring it along to the surgery.
