We are pleased to announce that Kingskerswell & Ipplepen Medical Practice have been fortunate enough to secure GP Five Year Forward View (GPFYFV) funding to support our house bound patients who require home visits by a GP. We aim to utilise these funds to offer our GPs additional support with our home visiting demand and have allocated time per week to telephone triage all home visit requests. This will enable us to release GPs from their surgeries to carry out home visits earlier in the day. Historically we have not been able to release a GP to carry out home visits before 12 midday, with these funds we can adapt the way we work to release a GP earlier for home visiting. The early visiting service will run on a Monday and Friday our two busiest days of the week. read more...
