Nurse Practitioners - primary health
Set up Nurse Practitioner clinics in community spaces, e.g. libraries where consumers can attend.
Why the contribution is important
Any nurse led or GP clinic within an ED does not deter people from ED attendance; which is why I belive they need to be attending facilities outside the ED environment.
This is as much about behaviour change management as appropriate care delivery.
This keeps consumers out of the ED waiting rooms, however if they need referral to a hospital they can be streamlied to the appropriate health facility based on the condition they are seeking assistance for.
