GP practise within ED
To provide a GP service hosted within the ED
Patient could get diverted at triage and the GP could help clear minor ailments.
The GPs would benefit by being incorporated in the ED team and this would provide cohesive care between community and hospital care.
Why the contribution is important
For patients who need care, who can't access a GP due to homelessness, in an area not serviced by mobile GP service, or out of hours. They are presenting with minor illness and injury, but if left untreated would progress to requiring more extension care.
