    26 Sept Episode - NHS COVID-19
     
    Welcome
     
    Introductions
     
    Live Saturday Episode
     
    DFPC Conference
     
    Demo…
     
    Video on screen
     
    Postcode - lets you know if area is high risk
    Cant change
    Info on localised measures and restrictions
    Data stays on the app and doesn’t need to go anywhere else
     
    Venue check in - QR code
     
    Check symptoms

    Read latest advice

    About the app

    Enter test result

    Switch off contact tracing

    How it works diagram and privacy - use FT diagram
    https://www.ft.com/content/d2609e26-8... 
    No centrally stored data - everything is dispersed across everyone’s phones…
    Supposed to address privacy concerns 
    No GPS or location data…
    All data on phone...

    Will people download it?
    Use not compulsory
    £1-10k fine if you refuse to self isolate… but the government won’t know
    Matt Hancock stated was optional….

    Will you use it?
     
    Coverage needed?
    50% based on comments about German App
    In May Iceland had highest uptake with 38% of its 364k population
    Singapore has 37% - early leader, bit more authoritarian

    Should GPs use the app in surgery?
    Can pause contact tracing for periods of time
    Not use if wearing PPE??????
    Flu clinics?
     
    Should we display a code at the surgery - like bars, hair salons and other venues?
    Bars etc. required to display under regulations
    No contractual obligation - voluntary
    Here is the link to create a code
    https://www.gov.uk/create-coronavirus... 
     
    Will your surgery promote it?

    Problems!!!
     
    NHS tests do not link to the app - relevant code currently not provided
    https://twitter.com/NHSCOVID19app/sta... 
     
    Will it overwhelm testing centres?
     
    Why the delay?
    “World beating app” supposed to be released 4 months ago?
    UK rejects apple/google solution
    https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/technology...
    UK Abandons own app
    https://healthcareleadernews.com/covi... 
    Battery and privacy and technical concerns...
     
    Thoughts?
     
    Missed opportunity?...
    Window of opportunity still open?
     
    Work as part of a whole range of measures
     
    But will be so much more ready for the next pandemic?
     
    Opens lots of future possibilities…
    New model for handling health data and sharing health data
    Gets people used to some health data
    Google and Apple as health data partners - kudos and entrance for them to the area
    Gets people used to using a smart app to guide health behaviours
    Open doors for health apps in the future

    So after all that - will you use it? Will you recommend it?

    Digital primary care update - Appointments, flu and video consultations

    Digital primary care update - Appointments, flu and video consultations

    Join Andy and Gandhi for their latest Digital Primary Care update after a brief break. What is new in general practice and digital health, find out here.
     
    Welcome eGPlearners
     
    Back from our summer break.
     
    Are you refreshed?
     
    Working on DPC conferences - sign up!
     
    Congratulations to fellow eGPlearner and long time Listener - Dr Sonali Kinra on her election to the National RCGP council. 
     
    What are we talking about this morning?
     
    A story about NHSD plans to count GP appointment data and the focus on appointment as the unit of work https://www.england.nhs.uk/wp-content...
    A story about how a CCG is partnering with video consult provider LIVI to make video consultations available for all of there 220,000 patients.
    Story and discussion about flu immunisation in practices and preparedness

    Main discussion point this week.
    Mapping time and appointments in GP has been a big issue on discussion forums this week.
     
    New Guidance on accurate monitoring of GP Appointment Data from NHS-D : https://www.england.nhs.uk/gp/gpad/ 
     
    Whats happening?
    Data extraction from CRS to NHSD to monitor GP activity
     
    Why causing a buzz?
    Provided a definition of of what an appointment is? What will be counted… And what will not be counted as an appointment.
     
    Go through on the PDF….
     
    Talking points
    If something isn’t counted then is it not valued? 
     
    Extracting the appointment ledger does not reflect the work taking place
     
    Letters
    Bloods
    Tasks
    Undocumented phone calls
    Supervising colleagues
     
    Concern that the real amount of work taking place will be underestimated
     
    What decisions about funding and resource allocation will be base on this data?
     
    Secondary care better at or longer history of strategic data collection - due to historic payment mechanisms?
     
    Leading to a wider discussion in some places about GP workload and the consequences of this being poorly defined and understood. Generally - issues of burnout?
     
    We delude ourselves that we do 9 - 3.5hr sessions - the profession tells itself this lie?
     
    How do you count activity….
    Multiple problems in one appointment?
    The number doesn’t equate to work and quality?
    Everything on the ledger - make everything that can be ana appointment, an appointment
     
    Should we instead focus on truly counting workload/activity?
     
    Should we focus more on outcomes in this population health-driven world?
     
    Why is this happening?
    So Governement can say that there are X million more appointments after an initial count and then 

    http://www.pulsetoday.co.uk/news/ccg-...
    NHS North Tyneside CCG said the 12-month pilot would give free online GP services to 222,000 patients without them having to deregister from the area's 25 GP practices
     
    ?extended access funding
     
    Some concerns from local GPS about the limitation of online appointments and whether funding could have been better spent with local practices.

    https://www.digitalhealth.net/2019/09... 
    Boots/Livi - £25 per appointment
    Good for access
    But erode / damage relationship and continuity with practices.

    http://www.pulsetoday.co.uk/views/how...
     
    More people - shielded, over 50s and existing groups
    COVID infection control, social distancing and PPE requirements
     
    The COVID vaccine plans and difference?
     
    Some additional help...
    City Care Staff locally able to do flu jabs
    Delay 50-65s until November
     
    What are you doing?
