Creating time to care by changing the way we deliver care.
Interested in delivering care in this way?
A person centered & efficient approach to delivering health care
Group consultations (also known as shared medical appointments, group clinics and group appointments) are one to one medical appointments delivered by a clinician within a group setting.
We have been working closely with practices across the UK to spread & scale up the delivery of group consultations, through our established learning & developing programme.
Group consultations are one of the 10 high impact actions (HIA’s) that sit within the GP forward view. These high impact actions are aimed at improving patient care & access, and investing in new ways of providing primary care.
97% of patients who attend group consultations would recommend this type of appointment to a friend or family. The average patient satisfaction rating is 4.7 out of 5.
We look forward to supporting you & sharing best practice as you go through your Group Consultations journey.
