ED backlog

I believe ED department needs to have Clinical accesors than can assess each patient as they come through the ED door.  If what they have can be treated at a GP practice then the patient should be directed to the nearest one that offers that service.  For instance some GP practices offer wound/skin dressing, injections, Train more staff in applying plaster/fibre glass casts and then contract them out to certain GP practices that have the areas.  All USS/xray should be done off campus and then patients return with the scans to be assessed again.

Why the contribution is important

It will reduce the type of patient the require short term care to longer more diagnostic care. It will stop the ramping. It will reduce ED wait times.
