Nurse Led Rapid Access
We are pleased to announce that we have recently employed two new, emergency trained nurses with specialist skills who will be implementing a nurse-led Rapid Access service. Nurses Kat and Juliette have had this service up and running from 11th March 2016 where patients who make contact with the surgery in the usual way, will be triaged into the appropriate slot to be seen by either GP or Nurse. The aim of this service is to allow GP’s to be able to spend more time with patients with more complex issues and conditions and the nurses to see and treat patients according to need. We of course realise that this will be a change for our patients but welcome this as positive in that patients will be able to receive the appropriate level of care and time according to their condition.
As widely reported in the media, General Practice is currently working in times of unprecedented pressure.
We appreciate your patience and understanding during this Winter season.
