A general practice approach
Many patients that attend A&E don’t need emergency care and benefit from a general practice approach to their medical problems.
This service allows eligible patients to be seen on site by GPs who work as part of the Emergency Department team. This helps manage workload and ensure patients get the best management without impacting individual General Practice activity.
Efficient, effective care
The service has resulted in reduced waiting and turnaround times, admissions and costs – while ensuring the highest possible standards of care are maintained.
