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 (GP TeamNet account required).

For additional support, staff can contact NHC by phone on 020 3688 2385 or by email at
