A unique opportunity has arisen for a salaried GP to join a practice in Tayside which has a unique way of working.

As part of a recent business review, the partners have introduced an innovative approach to improving working practices - see below for a brief overview:-

  • The practice (with an overall patient list of almost 11,000) has created 5 dedicated clinical teams and assigned patients to a specific team.
  • Each team consists of at least one GP, Nurse Practitioner, Health Care Assistant and Admin Support.
  • There is a current training and up-skilling programme in place which in turn will enable a more robust telephone triage system undertaken by the Nurse Practitioners and an ability for them to take on more minor cases so that GP's are free to deal with more complex patient needs
  • By having a smaller patient list, each team is better placed to forge closer relationships with patients and can offer improved continuity, removing the need for patients to repeat their history to yet another new face on each visit
  • It better allows staff to take a more holistic view when seeing patients and more easily identifying support that could be provided by other clinical team members, hopefully reducing the amount of times a patient needs to visit the practice and being proactive in providing support
  • GP's manage their own schedules, so can assign whatever length of time for appointments they feel appropriate, allowing for flexibility in appointments and the level of support that can be given, without the pressures of a full waiting room
  • Overall the new set up is allowing better access for patients and reducing waiting times to gain an appointment
