Colleagues at Devon LMC have developed and operationalised a simple system which collects a small amount of anonymised data from their practices so that they are able to indicate to the broader system the strain General Practice is under. This presents data in a simple to understand format which can compete with OPEL data collected on various system dash boards. In fact, their system converts the General Practice Alert State (GPAS) data into an OPEL assessment with associated triggers for a system response to support.
Wessex LMCs have reviewed the GPAS system and feel it to be a valuable and worthwhile tool that will help present facts to our system partners that will be hard to ignore! The GPAS system will be rolled out to Wessex Practices w/c 9th May 2022.
Dawn Chalcraft, Deputy Director of Primary Care at Wessex LMCs speaks with Andy Mintram, Business Manager at The Adam Practice to explain more.
