  • Home visiting in a rural community is resource heavy.

  • Requirement to also see patients in MIIUs results in additional strain on resources.

  • Patients can’t see a GP locally over festive periods.


Solution:

MIIU based GP duties:

Patients referred from NHS 24

Walk in patients

In-patients in attached community hospital
