Managing capacity and demand across the patient journey - The Practice receives hundreds of calls every day and the challenge has always been to balance the requirement to answer the phone against the buildup of work that each call generates and that must be tackled as soon as possible. This is in addition to the other administration work that a busy practice is required to manage whether its patient specific or various returns required by NHS England or the Leeds South and East Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG).

In an attempt to streamline the telephone system and to maximize efficiency we have invested in a top of the range telephone system. There are changes as to where and how the calls are answered. All calls are now taken at Oulton Surgery and additional staff are employed at Oulton to answer the phone as soon as possible. When picking up the call the receptionist will answer -  ‘’Oulton and Rothwell Medical Centre’.

These changes have been made to try and make the patient experience faster and will also reduce the stress and pressures that the Practice reception staff have been under.

Named GP - All Patients, including children have been allocated a named, accountable GP.  This may be different from the GP you normally see but overall responsibility for patient care has not changed. This is largely a role of oversight, with the requirements being introduced to reassure patients that they have one GP within the practice who is responsible for ensuring that this work is carried out on their behalf.
