The Older Persons Rapid Access Clinic (OPRAC) has been receiving urgent referrals without GP contact information being provided

Could you please ensure all referrals have either a mobile number or email address on the form. As patients are seen urgently to prevent admission, it is important for GPs to be available to discuss concerns. Not completing contact details prevents the patient being seen quickly as staff have to chase up the required information, which can take hours.

The OPRAC team thank you in advance for your cooperation.
