NHS Digital Advice and Guidance
(Eclipse Live)

NHS Digital General Practice Bulletin

What is it?

The Advice and Guidance service allows busy GPs to operate in the assurance that their patients are continually being monitored by over 1000 validated clinical pathways. Each week at risk patients are identified allowing rapid intervention reducing admissions and complications. Further advice can be securely obtained from remote specialists if needed reducing the need for referrals and delays in implementation of treatment. To date over 1000 GP Practices are utilising this system with an average reduction in admissions of 5% per annum.

How does it work?

Secure data extracts are taken from your principal clinical system either daily or weekly (GP Practice preference).

The centrally assured alerts are run each Sunday and your patients in need of action identified ready for Monday. Patients can be dealt with in house or referred onto your Advice and Guidance team.
