Exploring Outpatients Workshop

(Published on 11/02/2019)

Exploring Outpatients: Friday 8th March 2019 – HG Wells Centre, Woking – 1.30pm to 4.30pm

Most people have had some experience of going to an outpatient’s clinic. The traditional model of outpatients is struggling to keep up with growing demand. This can have a negative impact on those patients attending these important clinics.

Surrey Heartlands want to talk to patients and carers – those who have attended outpatients over the years – to hear their views on these services. What’s the purpose of outpatients? Are patients’ needs met by the traditional model or should we looking to do things differently? What would make outpatients fit to keep up with future demands? Your input could contribute to the design of future outpatient services across Surrey Heartlands.

The Surrey Heartlands clinical lead, Dr Mark Hamilton, has written a blog that might prompt a few thoughts: http://surreyheartlands.uk/outpatients-the-future/
