Did you refer the patient to the right place at the right time?
As a locum it can be especially challenging to get feedback on our referrals. Nonetheless, this is a valuable area of learning in how to use local resources efficiently, and most importantly, doing our bit in helping our patients have the smoothest, safest journey possible.
Focus on a particular type of referral or take a slice of consecutive referrals. This template gives tips on how to keep a log of patients of interest, the issues to consider when accessing medical records after you've left the practice and a framework for reflecting on whether the referral went as planned.
