GPs expected to provide 24/7 'decision support' under proposed out-of-hours revamp

June 20, 2013 — administrator

GPs will have to be available 24/7 to offer ‘decision support’ in order to prevent patients from being admitted to hospital under a plan to radically reform the urgent care system published by NHS England today.

The move is proposed as part of a package of suggested measures to improve the care of patients seven days a week, including holding GP telephone consultations out-of-hours’ and a guarantee that patients can have ‘same-day access’ to GPs who are ‘integrated with their GP practice’.

A CCG has allocated all but £3.3m of its £658m budget - 0.5% - for this financial year with nine months still remaining, sparking fears that it may not be able to fund practices to provide extra services.

Oxfordshire CCG said that it has allocated the £654.7m on planned acute, community and health services as increases in the cost of emergency care had put it under pressure. Its chair insisted the CCG will not run out of money.

However, local GP leaders warned the lack of remaining budget would adversely affect GPs.

Take part in The Big EPR debate - Jeremy Hunt paperless NHS by 2018

April 11, 2013 — administrator

Story from EHI - head on over to comment

When health secretary Jeremy Hunt makes speeches about his desire to see a paperless NHS by 2018, he likes to joke that his advisors have applauded him for his “brave” vision.
Ever since ‘Yes, Minister’ aired in the early 1980s, this has been taken as code for a minister doing something that his aides think deeply misguided and sure to end in tears.
