Glasgow update December 2010

Staffing levels
Staffing levels

  • Posts filled:

    3.4+ Consultants, plus share of NM post.

    6 A&C (2 band 3s, 3 band 4s, 1 data analyst/manager) – 1 has left!

    • Band 7 genetic counsellors (2 cancer, Hb, cardiac, community)

      1 staff grade (neuromuscular)

      0.6 Band 6 research nurse

      1 Band 5 Genetics clinic nurse


Impact of freeze on posts
Impact of freeze on posts

  • Frozen

    • Band 4/5 A&C – delayed awaiting outcome of appeal

    • 8A counsellors – delayed pending results of appeals

      Unable to provide community genetics service for half the region.

    • Consultant (staged, intended to be 2010/11)

      Gaps in service. HD / Marfan / Metabolic / Forth Valley.

    • Band 7 genetic counsellor (staged, intended to be 2010/2011)

      No dedicated neuromuscular genetic counsellor – input from one of the experienced cancer counsellors.


Key priorities
Key Priorities

  • Cut waiting times, especially cancer (2 additional counsellors, 8A post frozen) and at satellite clinics (new consultants setting up new clinics)

  • Rationalise appointments / records system, to enable more efficient and safer working – requires dedicated database, as well as access to records electronically and additional A&C staff already appointed.

  • Develop new services (and respond to increasing referrals) – additional consultant and counsellor funding has allowed increased input to cardiac genetics, haematology and community genetics, and freeing up senior genetic counsellor to develop further areas of community genetics (but only for part of the region with second community post frozen). Prenatal clinics about to start.


Key priorities1
Key Priorities

  • Cut waiting times, especially cancerand at satellite clinics. Much improved but need to maintain improvement and continue to reduce waiting times at some clinics.

  • Rationalise appointments / records system, to enable more efficient and safer working. Hoping to have new system by end of year.

  • Develop new services). Prenatal clinics have started. New clinics in Lanark, Newmains, additional Ayrshire clinic, more CDC clinics, new cancer clinics at Wishaw and Ayr. Skeletal dysplasia clinic expanded, links with ophthalmology.


Challenges
Challenges

  • Waiting times – further improvements; few now waiting 6 months but not yet achieving 12 week target in all clinics.

  • Negotiating local management processes to attempt to purchase / implement electronic developments eg scanning software, European tending process for database. Laptops now available for peripheral clinic, but still need access to network.

  • Communication / integration and training of new staff – harder to keep everyone informed in larger department; new staff needing training / mentors. Move to new building.


Challenges1
Challenges

  • Other

    • Agenda for change appeals almost complete!

    • counselling supervisionnow in place.


Electronic working
Electronic working

  • Majority of casenotes now scanned, small number outstanding.

  • Invu software has been installed and is working fairly well.

  • Additional scanners / photocopier allow better access to this.

  • Now stopped filing in attempt to avoid duplication in digitising and paper increasing workload. Problems being up to date if see patients with casenotes at satellite clinics.

  • Need access to network from satellite clinics etc before this will be achieved.

  • Lack of proper appointments system / database is main difficulty, so still much double / treble entering of data and few controls over accuracy and very timeconsuming getting data out!
