In The Community

GP practices and community services across the Bay now have a better picture of a patient’s journey in and out of hospital thanks to electronic systems like STRATA. GPs are now using the online NHS e-Referral Service (e-RS) for first time outpatient referrals, stopping paper referrals and reducing the amount of paper used.

GP’s are empowering their patients through apps such as the iPlato myGP app which patients use to book appointments with their GP practice and order prescriptions online instantly.
