Introducing a different way of managing appointment requests through our new Acute Team

We are very aware of the frustrations for patients, reception staff and clinicians with trying to provide the most efficient appointment system possible and increase the continuity of care provided. Clinicians have led the introduction of a new system which we have trialled for a month. Initial feedback from patients, clinicians and reception staff has been positive and therefore we would like continue with its implementation. The major change has been to create an Acute Team each day, which is made up of 1 GP and 2 Advanced Nurse Practioners (ANP) who will cover both sites and be based at Graham Road Surgery. Receptionists will ask patients for a brief outline of their request so they can best match the request to the options available. On the day/urgent requests to see a GP or ANP will be added to the Acute Team list. The list will be triaged (clinically prioritised) by our Acute Team and they will allocate appointments for GP or ANP. This will be done for both Graham Road and Clarence Park surgeries. Home visit requests will be added to the Acute Team list. The Acute Team will triage each patient on the list across sites, and if an appointment/visit is needed, the Acute Team will arrange. Patients will also be given the opportunity to pre-book routine appointments with a GP or ANP. We will aim to book a follow up appointment with the same clinician the patient has seen previously to provide more continuity. Practice Nurse and HCAs appointments will be booked as normal. We are currently reviewing how our patient online booking system will work best alongside the new appointment system.

Electronic Prescription Service will be live in June 2018

The NHS Electronic Prescription Service will be going live at the surgery in June 2018. This will cut down on a lot of paper and reduce our carbon footprint. If you get regular prescriptions, the Electronic Prescription Service (EPS) may be able to save you time by avoiding unnecessary trips to your GP. EPS makes it possible for your prescriptions to be sent electronically to the pharmacy or dispenser of your choice. Choosing a pharmacy or dispensing appliance contractor to process your EPS prescription is called nomination. Please click the button for more information
