Practice Boundary Map Update

For Practices using the Catchment Area tool from the old Primary Care Web Tool website (now managed by NHS Digital), it appears that all issues have been resolved and the postcode checker facility is fully functional.

And for the Practices not using this tool, it can be a very handy addition to your website, the map will show a rough (though sometimes quite accurate) outline of your catchment area and includes a postcode checker for patients to see if their postcode is within your boundary. If you would like it adding to your website, drop us an email here: contact@surgeryweb.org.uk and we’ll assist you with this.

Practice Boundary Map Update

We have received the following from NHS Digital regarding the Practice Boundary map on Practice websites:

NHS Digital are aware of the current technical issues being encountered with the existing catchment area links in use and we are aware that a technical solution has been made ready and is imminent on being deployed.

We anticipate that the approach taken will auto-redirect existing catchment area links in use onto NHS Digital’s new systems which will resolve the issue reported, without any further action been necessary. However should it be found necessary where a practice will need to take any specific action to update their website catchment area links to the practice website, NHS Digital will send out further communication to all practices to provide any guidance and support in relation to this service.

To request further support in relation to catchment area services please contact NHS Digital enquiries at enquiries@nhsdigital.nhs.uk

Primary Care Web Tool Practice Boundary Map

An e-mail was sent out on Wednesday 27th March by the Primary Care Web Tool team to notify Practices that their website would be closing from 31st March 2019.  I immediately replied to this to ask what would be happening to the Practice Boundary feature that they have hosted for many years because thousands of Practice websites use this feature, would there be an alternative or will they still be supporting it etc..

The reply I received was that a further email would follow regarding the catchment areas tool – this has not yet been sent as far as I am aware.

As expected, the Practice boundary map is not currently working on any Practice websites until this is taken over, and I have heard from other sources that NHS Digital may be taking over the support of this tool, but until confirmed this is unfortunately out of our hands and the map will not display correctly.
