The service is clinically reviewed to provide up to date information from the Directory of Services (DoS) and NHS.uk which can also signpost the patient to self-help and finding the right appropriate service.
This includes non-public contact numbers and information on who is eligible for the service, along with patient referral information,
Quick access to real-time service information means
- more time available for patient care
- increased awareness of the range of services available
- the ability to shift to lower acuity services where appropriate
- Supporting admission avoidance and easing the pressure on emergency departments in order to spread demand across the healthcare system more evenly. This is a key element in supporting the 111 First programme and impending winter pressures
