Active signposting frees up 80 inappropriate GP appointments a week - Waterside Medical Centre, South Warwickshire

Case study on how Waterside Medical Centre in South Warwickshire worked through the Learning in Action element of the Time for Care programme, a programme part of the support available through the General Practice Forward View, to look at active signposting.  The aim was to reduce the number of patients seeing a GP with problems that could be dealt with by other practice staff, or wider health economy.  The programme helped the practice release 11% of inappropriate GP appointments; this is 80 appointments per week equating to 13 hours of GP time.
