Information Request from the CCG about Nebuliser Use

Date sent: Friday 9 October 2015

All Somerset GPs and Practice Managers

Dear Colleagues

My apologies for further e mail, this should have been included on the Weekly update

Information Request  from the CCG about Nebuliser Use Practices will be now have had a request from the CCG for information about patients who have a nebuliser that was provided by the previous community COPD service.

The letter asks for practices to check whether patients on a short list included in the letter are still using a nebuliser and are still at their former address.  We think this is a reasonable request and would encourage practices to provide this information.

However, practices have also been sent a template  proforma that includes the serial number of the nebuliser and  the date that a service is due, amongst other information.  As practices have never been involved in the supply or maintenance of nebulisers, the LMC does not believe that providing this information is a practice responsibility.

The letter  also asks about any other patients, not on the list provided,  that  are using a community service supplied nebuliser.  We have explained that where a nebuliser came from is not  something that is coded on in the patient record, and that practices are unlikely to be able to  answer the question.

 

 

Kind Regards

Jill
