New guidance supporting practices to remove use of facsimile (fax) machines

The GP contract (NHS Long Term Plan and Investment and Evolution: a five-year framework for GP contract reform) set out that from April 2020, all practices will no longer use facsimile (fax) machines for either NHS or patient communications.

This practice guide contains detailed guidance and process steps to help practices achieve this. It also includes hints, tips and case study experiences to support general practices.
