GP in Emergency Department

SWGP provides this service which helps to ensure patients see the most appropriate doctor if they attend the hospital Emergency or Accident & Emergency (A&E) Department.

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.
