Network Development Framework (NDF)
We will be providing additional same day appointments from April 2014.
Funding has been provided by the Clinincal Commissioning Group (CCG) to enable the recruitment of additional staff to improve access and cut down the number of patients accessing A&E inappropriately during surgery hours (please read our 'alternatives to A/E' section). The Scheme commences in April for a 12 month duration. Our Practice has applied to recruit 1 GP locums and 1 ANP locum, this application has been accepted.
We will have 2 GP additional sessions per week (Monday Am & Pm) which equates to 60 extra appointments from April 14 until the end of March 15. We will also be enhancing the Clincal Call-Back scheme by using a team of advanced nurse practitioners to provide more capacity to deal with on the day patient demand.
These additional appointments will only be available to book on the day and will compliment our normal services.
As part of the scheme, our GP's and nursing team will be providing Care Management Plans to those patients with Long Term Conditions (COPD, Stroke & Epilepsy ) Patients attending will be invited to the Practice or by phone to discuss their own personal Care Plan to assist them in managing their condition.
