Consultant Connect is a simple telecoms initiative that makes it easier for local GPs and Consultants to talk to each other regarding patient-specific issues.

Outcomes from the c50,000 calls per annum currently going via the system indicate high percentages of referral and admission avoidance in elective, urgent and mental health settings. Making it easier for clinicians to talk to each other seems to make sense.
