Care Navigation

Care navigation is a way by which you  can get your matter dealt with quickly by the most appropriate service. This signposting service can be used in many ways eg instead of calling the surgery to make an  appointment to see your GP for an antenatal referral our reception staff  will signpost you to the online self referral antenatal booking form.

This will ensure that the referral is done in a timely manner without having to wait for an appointment to see the GP.

When you phone for an appointment to see the GP , the receptionist will ask you details of why you want to see the GP, this is so that the receptionist / care navigator can then assist you in making an appointment with the most appropriate person/service.

You do not have to give any details to the reception staff if you would prefer not to however if you do, it will help the staff to signpost you to the most appropriate service to meet your needs.

The choice to accept any service that you are signposted to is yours, you will not be denied an appointment with the GP.

I have a form that needs a gp’s input, how can I get this arranged?

Please vist the surgery with the relevant form/paperwork
The reception staff will then advise you further with regards to any fees payable and the time taken
to process the documentation.

I only need a gp’s signature whats the problem

When a GP signs a certificate or completes a report it is a condition of remaining on the medical register that they only sign what they know to be true. Therefore in order to complete even the most simplest of forms the GP must check the patients medical record.

Why not write what I ask

GP’s are under the BMA guidance and are tied to strict protocols of integrity, accuracy and upholding professional standards. Therefore they can only write what is factually correct and evidenced by their own medical assessment or from another health professional in writing.
Some patients can be disappointed by what they may want in a letter has not been reflected. Putting excessive pressure on the GP on something that Is not factually accurate is regarded as a breach of the Zero Tolerance Policy.

Why do I need to pay upfront

In the past we have completed reports and forms before payment has been made , but sadly there have been many occasions when the GP has completed there work but the payment has not been made. Therefore the fee must be paid in advance at the time of the request for their letter/form is made.
