  • Administrative triage using digital tools in General Practice

Supporting administrative staff in sorting, signposting and delivering administrative triage

Elearning to support sorting, signposting and delivering administrative triage now available

Health Education England has worked in partnership with NHS England and the Practice Managers Association to develop the Administrative Triage Using Digital Tools in General Practice elearning resources.

Practice staff play a vital role in supporting patients to get the right care based on their needs. Using online consultation tools to sort and signpost patient requests to the correct member of staff or service can enable clinicians to prioritise requests based on clinical need. Having the information in advance of a consultation can support the consultation discussion.

This elearning resource has been developed to support general practice administrative staff to design their practice workflow in sorting, signposting, and delivering administrative triage. The sessions aim to support an inclusive approach to managing demand and workload in a general practice setting.

Throughout each session the learner is signposted to existing resources, examples, tips and knowledge checks, which are mini quizzes designed to check how confident learners feel in each topic area.

About the elearning programme

There are 5 quick elearning sessions designed to support general practice staff in:

  • introducing administrative triage and understanding the evidence behind using an online consultation system to support patient requests
  • designing a practice workflow and setting up a triage list
  • promoting the service to patients and understanding some of the considerations for the practice team when working remotely
  • confidently taking patients, or their nominated carer, through an online consultation request over the telephone or in person
  • sorting patient requests and signposting to the right place, service or clinician for clinical triage

The elearning sessions take approximately 10 to 15 minutes to complete.

How to access the elearning

You can learn more about the Administrative Triage Using Digital Tools in General Practice resources on the programme page.

  • Building a More SuppoRTTive Culture

New session for postgraduate doctors in training returning to work now available

Health Education England elearning for healthcare (HEE elfh) has worked with Health Education England’s Supported Return to Training (SuppoRTT) team to develop a new elearning resource on positive culture within the workplace.

Building a More SuppoRTTive Culture explores the significance of organisational culture in shaping the experience of postgraduate doctors in training returning to work after a break and offers guidance on the measures that individuals can take to bring about positive cultural change, creating an NHS in which its staff can thrive and that is safe for the patients it serves.

Developed with contributions from experts in the field, such as Professor Michael West CBE (Senior Fellow at The Kings Fund) and Professor Jim Barrie (Senior Lecturer in Medical Education at Edge Hill University), the 40-minute session highlights the fundamental role of every single person within the healthcare system, clinical and non-clinical, in building a positive, supportive culture.

Although the resource aims to help create a positive culture for returning postgraduate doctors in training (with all the benefits this brings) it has wider implications for, and parallels with, how we build a more supportive culture more generally within the NHS. 

For more information and to access the resource, please visit the Building a More SuppoRTTive Culture programme page.
