IN a major success for Bradford Care Alliance, we have secured the contract to deliver GP streaming in the A&E department at Bradford Royal Infirmary. A request has been sent to all BCA member practices to look at whether you wish to deliver the required service.
BCA has successfully secured this opportunity for the member practices as part of its ongoing approach and commitment to deliver sustainable primary care, and ensure that local GPs continue to deliver care locally for the population.
The service is scheduled to go live in October 2017 with the following aims and objectives:
To provide a front-end streaming and primary care presence in the Emergency Department (ED) at Bradford Royal Infirmary to ensure that presenting patients are able to be rapidly assessed and streamlined into the most appropriate care pathway for their needs.
To provide an alternative pathway within Bradford Royal Infirmary ED for people with conditions that are suitable for management by a Primary Care physician.
To fully integrate the primary care service into ED to provide seamless patient pathways irrespective of the nature of their condition.
To free up the emergency physicians to concentrate on the management of higher acuity patients and to support the delivery of the 4-hour target within ED
