How much value do TRAQs add vs Cost?
1) GP explained referral
2) TRAQs call
3) Letter arrives – TRAQs
4) Letter arrives – clinic/hospital
5) Wait 8-10 weeks
6) Notification of appointment by letter/phone (sometimes both)
Introduction of DB of Patient Choices:
- Nearest Hospital/shortest waiting time – this leads to TRAQS ask/offer
- Confirmation by email/SMS would cut the above. At this point the patient could get in touch to amend if necessary.
- Ive also had a number of referrals and receive this form every time. Cost vs benefit?
