NHS Liverpool CCG’s deployment of Damibu Feeds to distribute news and information


Since 2020, Liverpool Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) has used Damibu Feeds to dramatically improve the way they distribute news, alerts and information through the city’s GP websites.

Deployed at the height of COVID-19 the project played an important role in ensuring that Primary Care organisations across the city were sharing up-to-date, accurate and trusted information with their patients.

The aim of this on-going project is to improve the quality and consistency of health and care information in Liverpool, whilst reducing workload for practice managers and admin staff in the GP surgeries.

Allowing the NHS to aggregate web content


Integration of Damibu Feeds onto GP websites started in May 2020. The project was given extra urgency by the need to quickly distribute and update information during the UK’s first COVID-19 lockdown.

The platform allows Liverpool CCG to push articles on to surgery and PCN websites. GPs retain control having the option to automatically accept or manually review every article. Around two-thirds of the practices have chosen automatic publishing, whilst the other third are manually moderating their Feeds.
