A recent study by the NHS Alliance found that across the country, 27% of GP appointments could potentially be seen more quickly by other healthcare professionals, including nurses or pharmacists, or simply didn’t need an appointment. By helping signpost people, care navigators are reducing reliance on GPs and making the most of the resources available in healthcare.
What alternatives to a GP might be offered?
Depending on the information given and a patient’s condition, you may be better off seeing a practice nurse, pharmacist, counsellor, physio, walk in centre, minor injuries unit, optician, midwife or dentist. For some cases, such as test results or x rays, you may not need an appointment.
