An exciting project is being rolled out by the Redmoor Health team which will help retain GPs.
The video retention programme will support GPs who are on reduced hours or considering retirement by providing the technology and support to run remote consultations with some patients.
It is hoped the programme, which is funded by NHS England, will help practices retain skills and provide more capacity to see patients.
The programme will use a variety of technological video solutions including Iplato, Cisco Jabber and Xuper cloud based video.
Programme lead, Marc Schmid said the programme was already showing great promise:
“We are already seeing that there is an appetite for patients to opt for a video consultation as part of this programme. It is very much practice-led and each user case is tailored to the needs of the practice and their patients. Some remote clinics are running in evenings and some at other parts of the day but in each instance the doctor is able to run sessions they would not have otherwise been able to achieve.”
We are already oversubscribed for this which is fantastic news and will also be looking to expand it to include other health professionals.
