Salford-wide extended access pilot
The demands made of primary care are changing due to social, health and economic factors. To address these changes NHS Salford CCG have commissioned the Salford Wide Extended Access Pilot (SWEAP). This initiative seeks to find an effective and sustainable model for the provision of evening and weekend general practice appointments and diagnostic testing services across all five Salford neighbourhoods. This has potential to both directly and indirectly improve health service provision (e.g. reduction of primary care bottlenecks and more efficient use of other services such as A&E).
The project will explore a range of both qualitative and quantitative data relating to service provision and use. This will provide valuable information to support future commissioning of services. More information is available here in the Organising Healthcare Programme section of the CLAHRC GM website.
