The NHS long term plan to save up to 500,000 lives includes a drive to use new technology to help treat and prevent conditions. Patients will be able to access health care at the touch of the button through the a “digital front door” to the NHS. Evening Standard.
Single Point of Access
DMC single point access centre transforms the way we communicate with our patients. From 2019 patients will be able to use video conferencing technology to assist communication with and between their clinicians, GPs but physiotherapists, practice nurses, pharmacists, mental health workers and physician associates. We support the Commission’s vision of teams of healthcare professionals meeting the needs of patients much earlier in their journey through the NHS. This would allow GPs to concentrate on those aspects of care that only they can provide.
