1. Keeping patients up to date if a clinic is running late.
2. Addressing the amounts of patients that do not attend for appointments.
3. Old magazines in the waiting room being unhygienic.
4. Telephone consultations with doctors for advice.
5. Early morning appointments for blood tests.
6. Shorter waiting times to see a clinician.
1. Receptionists now place a sign on the reception desk to inform patients if a doctor or nurse is running behind and where possible inform patients as they book in.
2. The surgery now sends text message appointment reminders to patients with mobile phones to remind the patient of their appointment and requesting that they contact the surgery to cancel it should they no longer need to be seen. For persistent non-attenders a letter is now sent to the patient highlighting the risk of them being removed from the practice list should their attendance not improve. To raise awareness an article is placed in the Quarterly Newsletter and a notice is put up in the waiting room on a monthly basis breaking down the amount of hours in doctors and nursing appointments that have been wasted.
3. All magazines have been removed from the waiting area for hygiene reasons.
4. All doctors now have telephone consultations built into their surgeries every day they are in practice.
5. There is a Healthcare Assistant available for appointments on a Monday and Tuesday from 7am.
6. The start of telephone Nurse Triage for all emergencies which means you quickly get to see the right clinician when you are suffering from an urgent illness. This has also reduced the waiting time for routine appointments.
