Breaking the Triangle?
How do you improve access and quality
whilst reducing cost?
Offer patients who plan to attend to:
• transact online (appointment book)
• stratify themselves (symptom check)
• manage themselves (self-help)
• use other services (sign post)
• take phone advice (nurse callback)
• e-consult (structured history analysis)

do if your condition
isn’t listed
On selecting
condition, patient
chooses between
self-help, sign
posting, nurse
advice now or econsulting their
own GP with a
response before
the end of the
next day
After completing some
personal details which
the practice uses to
confirm the patient is
registered with them, the
patient completes a
comprehensive set of
questions about their
condition and what help
they are looking for
Red-Flag questions stop
the process and redirect
the patient to urgent
care if they identify a
dangerous symptom e.g.
severe shortness of
breath
Patients can email
themselves a copy of
their answers or a leaflet
on their condition
before submitting to the
practice
Patient advised on what
will happen next and
what to do if they get
worse while waiting
Patient submits
completed
questionnaire from
website which arrives
in practice generic
email box as a GP
summary report.
Staff then workflow or
print report for GP to
review.

minutes for GPs to
analyse
