The Evolving Times of General Practice

2 new systems have been released, which we hope will improve patient access.

Quick GP Message ©The Elms Practice 2016  is system created to be used either on-line via our website www.theelmspractice.co.uk or over the phone, or by filling in a short request at the reception desk, if it is felt that this is the appropriate option for you.

E-Consult is a web-based platform that enables patients to self-manage and consult online with their own GP through their practice website. Part of the functionality is integrated into the clinical software that we already use, so it is easy to use and auditable for patient safety and response times.

With eConsult, patients can use a symptom checker, self-manage, signpost to other services or complete an eConsult for one of 100 common General Practice conditions with their own GP at a time convenient to them, 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.  

 

In 2014, a six-month study examined the benefits of providing eConsult to 133,000 patients and resulted in a 400-hour reduction in GP appointment time.

 

E-Consult has shown that 60% of patients were able to resolve their health concerns without visiting a GP.

We have a specialist Asthma Nurse, a specialist COPD Nurse and a Respiratory Specialist who hold regular asthma clinics at the Surgery – they will make sure that your treatment is the most suitable for you. You will be able to ask questions about asthma/COPD and/or your medication and to find out what you can do to help keep your asthma well controlled.

Diabetic Clinic

These nurse-led clinics are held at least twice during the week. Diabetic patients are entered into a recall system and will receive an invite to be seen either six monthly or yearly.

Travel Clinic

If you are travelling to one country for no longer than one month please download our travel form from the link below and return it to reception. A nurse will then call you and make a suitable appointment time with you.

If you are travelling to more than one country or are going for longer than one month please make an appointment with a specialist travel clinic for example The Hampshire travel clinic in Emsworth or GoGlobal vaccinations in Chandlers Ford. Advice can also be found on the NaTHNac web site.
