Stephen Ryan, PwSI Lead, Newquay, 2 nd March 2005 GPwSIs – National Perspective
The new NHS Patient choice Demand management Targets and Ratings Secondary to primary care shift Clinical governance/Quality Key role for PCTs? Access Patient pathways
The NHS Plan Section 12 Cutting Waiting for Treatment up to 1,000 specialist GPs will be taking referrals from fellow GPs for conditions in specialties such as ophthalmology, orthopaedics, dermatology and ear nose and throat surgery. They will also be able to undertake diagnostic procedures such as endoscopy.
GPwSI definition -1 (DoH/RCGP) GPwSIs supplement their important generalist role by delivering a high quality, improved access service to meet the needs of a single PCT or group of PCTs. They may deliver a clinical service beyond the scope of normal general practice, undertake advanced procedures or develop services.
GPwSI definition -2 (DoH/RCGP) They will work as partners in a managed service not under direct supervision, keeping within their competencies. They do not offer a full consultant service and will not replace consultants or interfere with access to consultants by local GPs.
GPwSI - key points Provide full range of GMS/PMS services to their own patients Take referrals for patients previously referred to secondary care or provide enhanced service for particular conditions or patient groups additional training and expertise
Nurses with a Special Interest..may work across a number of practices providing a secondary care service....an outreach basis…supporting patients with chronic conditions in the home....may combine a more general role..as a district or practice nurse…with expertise in diabetes..
Dentists wSI..works within the limit of their competency in providing a special interest service…refers on where necessary...a service complementary to secondary services....enhanced services with improved access..

Step-by-step……Shared Care Service review Health needs Demand and capacity Steering group Service scope Remuneration Clinical governance Audit and evaluation
York Health Economics Consortium ( Sep02) 30-40% of ENT referrals could be seen by GPwSI GPwSI discharges 70-80% of patients back to own GP Low DNAs ( typically 1-2%) GPwSI seeing 9-10 patients per week, will have consultations per annum
Quicker Treatment Closer to Home (Audit Commission) Service redesign not mainstream PECs need to drive service redesign 36% of PwSI services by one professional SHA catalyst role Shortage of clinicians for PwSI PCTs need to involve a greater range of healthcare professionals
GPwSI….weaknesses Clinical information systems CPD in contracts Access to consultant support for problem patients Clinical governance responsibility Costings Funding for support and admin
