From seeing patients who should be seen by a nurse, to dealing with administrative queries, GPs often find themselves carrying out tasks that shouldn’t be their responsibility. This not only proves costly for practices, but also reduces access, safety and team morale.
Shift your skill mix
As recommended by the RCGP, NHS GP Forward View and CQC, practices should optimise their skill mix, making use of nurse practitioners, pharmacists, paramedics, physician associates, mental health practitioners and more.
AccuRx Chain Reception supports your receptionists and enables them to book patients in with the right people and at the right urgency. We help you plan your future workforce based on historic data, and identify the training gaps, helping everyone to reach their full potential.
