A digital screening and demand-management tool, priority.you enables GP practices to triage patients into – or out of – practices safely and effectively according to need.
In 2015, “27% of GP appointments were judged to have been appropriate for diversion or handled differently.”*
While acting as a gatekeeper for appointment bookings, the system is not designed to turn people away. For those who could be supported elsewhere, it offers a range of targeted self-care, social prescribing and community healthcare services as alternative options.
We have recently undertaken a wide ranging study working directly with GP practices which is funded by Innovate UK. The aim was to further develop the platform and confirm the need for digital tool to help manage capacity. We are now looking to establish long-term collaborative partnerships with NHS bodies and commercial organisations. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like to take part in a pilot.
