DEVON'S GENERAL PRACTICE ALERT STATE

(C) Devon Local Medical Committee 2020

Updated every Friday

Current Alert States Valid 14 Feb - 20 Feb

The pressures facing the Acute Trusts are well publicised and captured by the OPEL Framework. General Practice has had no equivalent and so it is easy for Government, patients and other Health Care providers to assume that things are not so bad in this part of the Primary Care system. DEVON LMC has designed this simple GP Alert State which relies on a weekly return from Practices who are asked to report their Alert Status and locality. You can access an explanation below.

 

COUNTY WIDE ALERT STATUS

Currently AMBER (69% return rate)

Meaning: Practices are running with some staff/resource shortage, patient waiting times are acceptable and communications with external stakeholders are at slightly elevated levels. The Amber state is sustainable in the medium term only and management action is required to revert to the Green state. 

NORTH DEVON

Meaning: Practices are running with some staff/resource shortage, patient waiting times are acceptable and communications with external stakeholders are at slightly elevated levels. The Amber state is sustainable in the medium term only and management action is required to revert to the Green state.
