How a workflow administrator saved us 40 minutes a day


I agree competent admin should be doing this as part of their job description. Not in this case. I do note not a jot of information on extra cost in terms of hard cash. Euphemisms abound. 60% of WTE Admin is used. So, for the a sake of my poor math, WTE = £30k, then cost equals £18,000 extra in this practice of six doctors (assuming just less than 2000 per WTE GP). Again approx 12k patients it works out as £1.50 per patient per year. GPFV good for that then?
