Improving Access to GP Services in Heywood, Middleton and Rochdale
Patients are increasingly reporting more difficulty in accessing GP services. Practices would like to offer better access, but they are experiencing growing pressure and are having difficulties in offering their patients timely appointments. To help address these problems, Heywood, Middleton and Rochdale Clinical Commissioning Group have developed an 'Improving access to general practice scheme' which requires practices, working in partnership with Rochdale Health Alliance, the local GP Federation, to implement some changes which are intended to improve access.
Sometimes the best professional to deal with your needs is not the GP. The main change that you will experience is that the receptionist will ask you some questions that will assist them to make sure you see the most appropriate person in the shortest possible time. The questions will cover:
- Nature of the problem?
- Duration of the problem?
- Severity of the problem?
Please help the receptionist to help you by answering these questions. All information given to any member of the practice team will be will be treated in the strictest of confidence.
