To help our GPs meet the new contractual requirements from October 2014, specified by NHS England for a Friends and Family Test (NHSFFT) at all General Practices, MJog have developed an app which allows Patients to provide feedback in a quick and simple way, which will require minimal administration by Practice staff.
The new app gathers the required Patient FFT feedback digitally, on a low cost tablet device, which can then be used to record and measure just how successful clinics have been at meeting Patient needs, providing valuable information for improving Patient services. It is a simple and straightforward way for surgeries and health centres to establish and develop their levels of patient experience and the levels of care given to patients. [Read More]

In a bid to avoid vaccines expiring later in 2014, Public health chiefs have told GPs they must vaccinate children aged between 2-4 years within a three-month window this winter. Delays to the immunisation programme will mean vaccines expire midway through the flu season which runs from August 2014.
Experts from Public Health England (PHE) said in guidance for this year’s flu immunisation programme that it was ‘highly likely’ central stocks of the chosen Fluenz vaccines will have expired by the end of January 2015. Part of the Giving all children a healthy start in life policy, child vaccinations are part of the aim to give children the best possible care from an early age.

To help reduce the number of unplanned emergency admissions to A&E, CCGs will have new funding available for their GP Practices, worth up to £5 per patient, for supporting care of the elderly. Currently, the majority of CCGs have not yet committed their funding to support GPs to roll out the new emergency admissions DES, despite the pledge from NHS England to commit funding to this latest DES.
Some CCGs have assigned funding conditions to the new target, which include reducing admission rates and potentially increasing at home care interventions. Transforming care for the elderly can equate to an extra £50 for patients aged 75 and over. CCGs are also assigning conditions to the release of funding which will be based around conditions such as COPD, Diabetes and Atrial Fibrilation. [Read More]
