  • A minimum commitment of 10 slots per day.
  • Flexible and adaptable to meet the demands of your patient load.

Optimised Hypertension Clinic

Our clinicians follow the latest national guidelines and record accurate coding of data for the national contract requirements.

Major Conditions Clinic

Patients with any of the 6 Major Conditions typically have co-morbidities which are often managed separately with patients making multiple visits, taking up time and raising anxiety. Our clinics will manage holistically, co-morbidities if a patient has any number of the 6 Major Conditions.

Optimised Asthma Clinic

Our clinicians review your asthma list, talk to your patients about any triggers or symptoms, update their written asthma action plan and check their inhaler technique.

Optimised COPD Clinic

Delivered as either an annual review or a spot review of your COPD patients. Our clinicians review your COPD list, test your patient's breathing (spirometry test), discuss their treatment and assess their inhaler technique.

* Our clinics utilise clinicians that are funded under the ARRS reclaimable rate programme, where possible. The scheme allows primary care organisations to claim reimbursement for the salaries (and some on costs) of 17 new roles within their multidisciplinary team, selected to meet the needs of the local population.

Core Clinical Tasks:

Core clinical tasks completed in each of our clinics include: 

  • Taking a comprehensive patient history.

  • Performing a clinical assessment.

  • Formulating differential diagnoses.

  • Requesting, interpreting and acting on diagnostic tests and investigations.

  • Formulating an action plan for treatment.

  • Admitting, discharging or referring a patient dependent on need at the time of review.

Why you can trust GPDQ

South Downs Health & Care is a GP Federation covering 17 practices and 200,000 patients. Faced with an increasingly ageing population, they had a large capacity deficit. GPDQ came in to deliver SDHC’s Extended Access service.

“We’ve been working with GPDQ to deliver a range of primary care services since 2021. GPDQ have provided flexible solutions to delivering additional capacity to the federation through remote and in-person GP services, as well as administrative support. Their support has allowed us to grow our service offering despite the workforce pressures locally.”
