Practices checking patients' migration status takes '30 minutes work per month'


Apart from anything else, the sums given don't add up. 2116 new registrations in 3 months (it may even be 2, depending on whether the study ended at the beginning or the end of June) at 9 practices equates to an average of 78.4 registrations per practice per month. So, if you believe the figure of 1 to 2 minutes per registration, that means 78.4 to 156.7 minutes per month, the latter figure being over 500% of their estimate of 30 minutes per month.
