New Telephone System
Backed by a large investment from the government, and Cheshire ICB, Warrington GP practices have been encouraged to make the switch from analogue systems – which can leave patients on hold and struggling to book an appointment – to modern, easy-to-use digital telephones designed to make sure patients can receive the care they need when they need it.
The target is for all GP surgeries in England to have digital phone lines by March 2024.
We are pleased to advise our patients that after many months of planning, Culcheth Medical Centre will be switching telephone providers from March the 4th 2024.
Cloud telephony will enable our practice to operate the phone systems via an internet connection, rather than the traditional physical telephone lines.
Providing access to services and the continued demand for appointments puts pressure on often overloaded and outdated phone lines and this is something we have been working to improve upon for many months.
By moving communications to the Cloud, we hope that our practice can significantly improve patient-to-practice communications while accessing the administrative control and features needed to improve practice performance.
X-On's award-winning Cloud-based phone system, Surgery Connect, is deployed in over 2,400 GP practices across England and Wales, serving an estimated 10 million patients.
Surgery Connect is a hosted phone system supporting IT transformation within the NHS by delivering quality, safety and efficiency to staff and patients.
Providing healthcare professionals with full patient consultation history, including call and video recordings linked to the patient record, ensures staff and patient safety. Empowering patients by allowing them to manage their own appointments, while reducing the burden on staff via notifications to at risk groups, improves administrative efficiency and allows staff to focus on patient interaction.
Contact centre features, including intelligent call queueing and routing, highly secure call recording automatically attached to patient records, confirm and remind systems to reduce DNAs, telephone triage and extensive reporting.
