Clinical Service Updates
Aldershot Paramedics get top marks from Practices
A survey by the paramedic practitioners gave Practice staff a chance to say how well they feel the service is going. Scores were 95% top or next to top for positive impact on their daily routine and for accuracy and conciseness of clinical data provided; and 84% top or next to top for ease of arranging a home visit. This lower score was due to a flexible arrangement aimed at ensuring fairness of home visit allocations across practices not being fully understood, but the popularity of the service also had an impact. The wider Paramedic team will be growing and working flexibly over the coming months to ensure service is consistent across the patch.
