A Public Consultation on Proposals to Change 7-Day Access to Primary Care Services
In Spring 2016, our Clinical Commissioning Group (DDES CCG) undertook a public consultation about urgent care services. During that consultation, we also asked the public and clinicians to tell us where we should locate primary care services that provide additional evening and weekend appointments. Nine hubs (practices working together) across the DDES area (including Jubilee Medical Group) were chosen as the preferred option by the public.
It was agreed to implement and then review these changes after six and then 12 months of operation. This was to ensure the service covered the full winter period to truly understand the impact. In this review, we looked at who used primary care services, when and why.
The need to change was established after we reviewed public and clinician feedback, including patient views, activity, capacity, impact on other services, practice requirements, value for money, transport and pharmacy provision.
The review highlighted that the hubs were valued but some were significantly underused. This consultation is about our proposals to address these issues and to improve 7-day access to primary care services in the DDES area.
