Podiatry needs to improve in Camden
Trend of podiatrists looking at diabetics feet
Footcare is generally based in secondary care however should be more accessible
Podiatric surgeons should be utilised more in Camden
Development of a community gynaecology clinic in Camden would deliver increased choice and health benefits to women and their lifestyle
Challenge data validation and wrong data should be challenged where possible
Importance of timely information in a format that is easy to understand
High risk patients – small proportion of population account for large cost. Great benefit of identifying these and planned interventions.
Challenge to redesign is the lack of data currently available on referral patterns
Instead of new service, a streamlining of referral pathways maybe needed
Possibility of direct optician referral
Reviewing same day GP access for acute cases.
Consultant to consultant referrals need to be looked into
Stronger organisational structure for PBC is required
Attention to detail on specification design (e.g MSK)
PBC should have a role in performance monitoring of contracts once tendered
