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.
