The Potentially Avoidable Audit Tool

The Potentially Avoidable Audit Tool

The BMA have issued the Potentially Avoidable Audit Tool for practices. 

 They have released the following information on the audit tool.

“A simple tool for reviewing workload within the practice and exploring how things might be managed differently in the future. So far, nearly 500 practices have received reports and a new, fully automated web- based tool is now available at no cost to all practices across England.

Four reasons to get involved:

  1. It’s a really simple tool for practices to use to look at how the current workload picked up by GPs could be done in other ways – whether that’s by other members of the team, or outside the practice
  2. It helps you look at the differences in the way your clinicians see their work – showing variation within your team and letting you compare yourselves with others across the Country – as soon as you complete the audit you can immediately download a report
  3. And its free for any GP Practice in England to use – the costs of developing and running this audit have been funded in full, from the General Practice Forward View, NHS England”
