• Reception teams are key to achieving aims of the GP forward view

    5 September 2017

    Reception teams can improve the experience of patients and practice staff by taking simple steps to improve customer service.

    This event supports practices to make the changes that will result not just in happier, healthier patients but more confident, capable staff able to reduce stress and enjoy greater job satisfaction. A recent report in the British Medical Journal called patient experience “one of the central pillars of quality in healthcare”.

    Our training supports several of the ten “high impact actions” for practices prescribed by the GP Forward View, including developing the practice team, quality improvement, active signposting, social prescribing, self-care and reduced DNAs (“did not attends”).

    The events will be held on 5 December in London, 25 January 2018 in Manchester and 7 February 2018 in Birmingham.

    Commissioners interested in making this training available locally to their practices should contact enquiries@pcc-cic.org.uk with “customer service training” in the subject line.
