Guest Speaker - Advanced Paramedic Practitioner in Urgent Care!
ParaSoc is pleased to welcome Karen Usher to answer the question many of us have asked….
What can I actually refer to the patient’s GP surgery for?
We often make referrals to the patient’s GP, but how often do we actually understand or know what we want the surgery to do? Are we just asking them to ‘follow up’ or are there specific things in mind?
Having worked front line as both a registered Nurse and Paramedic for many years, Karen moved over to work in a GP surgery as an Advanced Practitioner. As a prescriber Karen performs all the same duties a GP does at her surgery, and naturally therefore has great insight into the sorts of things that Paramedics and Ambulance clinicians should be referring / asking the patient’s GP to do!
As always drop us a message if you have any questions, looking forward to seeing lots of you there! :)
Remember to get your ticket!
