Avoiding routine doctor-only follow up in the OP clinic after stroke

by Takechargeharry | 6 months ago | in Rehabilitation
Horizon 2

Switching to mainly telephone and, where necessary, video consultations has been better for patients (more convenient, much shorter time commitment - previously patients were advised to attend the hospital an hour early just to find, and pay for, a car park- better balance of 'power' between the patient/family and doctor) and the doctors (easier scheduling, less time wasted with DNAs, easier to refer to scans/results/letters while on the phone without disengaging the patient). 

What is needed to sustain the change?  

A commitment to avoiding just going back to doing what we used to do

Really like this as long as there is real choice for the patient in regard to their preference and clinical need
