Patient Triage At Manor View Practice

The Patient Triage Appointment System has been designed to ensure that patients who most need an appointment are able to get one.

It’s a new appointment system that involves a GP triaging all appointment requests before an appointment is given. This means that the GP will determine how quickly an appointment is needed and whether your request would be better dealt with by another member of our multi-disciplinary clinical team or by another service.

With a short and simple set of questions, your completed form will be sent to our triage hub, meaning that your appointment request will be triaged promptly, and you will receive a response from your GP in a timely manner. We have a very high completion rate of forms, and over 80% of patients find the form ‘easy’ or ‘very easy’ to use. We also request that patients no longer attend the practice to book an appointment.

The online consultation form will be reviewed against a triage protocol. The more information you provide us with, the better we can ensure that you are triaged to the most appropriate pathway. You may receive a text back asking for more information or photographs, you may receive a phone call from a clinician, you may be sent a text with a link to self-book an appointment in the coming days or receive a phone call to book an appointment. If you have a preferred clinician, please let us know. While we strive to accommodate your request, we cannot guarantee it. This will ensure you see the most appropriate clinician first time around.  If you have requested a specific clinician and we are able to accommodate this we will text you the time and date for an appointment.  Please reply to this text if the appointment is not suitable, however we can not guarantee you another appointment with the same clinician.
