Consultant Link Service Extended to South Bristol

GP Care’s Consultant Link Advice and Guidance Service is available for South Bristol GP practices from Monday 5th November. The service, which has been set up in partnership with University Hospitals Bristol NHS Foundation Trust, has received very positive feedback from GPs in North and West Bristol, South Gloucestershire and North Somerset who have been using the service since mid-September to seek advice from cardiology consultants about specific patients.

Using a smart telecoms solution the service provides GPs with access to appropriate teams of specialist consultants using 'hunt group' technology linked to consultants' mobile phones. The phone calls are converted to digital recordings which are sent to GP practices to be attached to patient records - as such it is a paperless system that enables swift interaction between GP and consultant and is therefore a highly efficient use of expert time and resource.

For further information on the services that we provide please call us on 0333 332 2100 or email us at info@gpcare.org.uk.
