9 Patient Choice/Directory of Services Greater Manchester Directory of Services Initially made be made up of local DoS for each RBMS Local DoS would contain information on bookable services relevant to a specific RBMS depending on Acute Trust PAS access. Develop minimum information to book per clinic e.g appropriate for OP procedure etc Exclusions Ensure referrals include minimum information to book Consultant working from multiple hospitals Open referrals

10 Consultants view All referrals are registered by the RBMS centre. The expansion of Tier 2 will accommodate patients who dont require secondary care Possible change in referral patterns – GPs dont need to refer to specific consultant just to be able to track the referral Agreed appointments will be booked by the RBMS centre with the patient Reduce DNAs and patient cancellation

11 Consultants view Soon able to view captured referrals in electronic format Working towards the ablility to prioritise and accept referrals on-line Indicate next steps – i.e. scan before appt and track the steps to allow the RBMS centre to be able to inform the patient Help develop Greater Manchester Directory of Services Reduced secretarial time chasing information for patients – the patient will contact the RBMS centre RBMS centre able to produce copy of original referral if required – all scanned on receipt

12 Patients view Improved Access, Booking and Choice Single point of contact for queries and cancellations Able to have choice in the appointment date, time and location for specialities/services subject to roll out plan Reduced anxiety – fully informed of booking processes Able to access information on available services and waiting times Looking at developing processes to allow on-line booking for authorised booker – chronic disease
