How do we use your information to run evening and weekend services?
In order to run evening and weekend GP clinics, the 37 practices in Leeds West have joined together to open ‘Hubs’ that make the best use of the limited resources available for these kinds of services. By running clinics from fewer locations we are able to offer more appointments than if each practice opened in the evenings and on weekends.
For all practices to be able to book appointments for their patients at these Hubs we use a dedicated clinical system called SystmOne to host an appointment book which all participating GP practices can access to book appointments for their patients. GP’s at the Hub use this system to help them locate the patients medical records on our practice clinical system which they access for the purpose of providing care during the appointment the patient has booked in an evening or weekend clinic at the Hub.
This requires us sharing the following patient information on the Hub appointment booking system:
- Date of Birth
- Contact Telephone Number
- Registered Practice
