GP Care's Community Ultrasound Service continues to see patients within 5 days

GP Care's Community Ultrasound Service continues to offer rapid response times for patients and referring GPs.

100% of patients are being offered appointments within 3 working days of referral. Whilst some choose appointment times beyond this timeframe our average referral to appointment time is around working 5 days.

We continue to provide referring GPs with discharge reports within 2 working days.

Set out below are some random anonymised examples of our response rates during December 2013 and January 2014.
