Kathryn Bourke & Nicole Bennett
Project: Improving access and efficiency in the JHH Gynaecology Outpatient Service – a service redesign project
Team Leaders: Kathryn Bourke, CNC Gynaecology & Women’s Health and Dr Angela Dunford, Gynaecology Fellow
Aim: To review the woman’s journey- from the time she presents to her GP with gynaecological symptoms to resolution of her condition. Providing robust, evidence-based guidance will assist GP’s in referring women to our service and may even lead to avoiding a referral as the GP can use the guidance to manage the women themselves. The potential to offer telehealth and phone support to GPs may also result in a decrease in the need to refer some women.
