Information for GPs

The Western Trust has established a GP Liaison Forum meeting every two months and the notes of

the meetings will be sent to every GP practice in the area.


The Forum meets to discuss and address a wide range of issues including Intermediate Care Arrangements; Discharge and Outpatient Information; Dermatology and Neurology arrangements; staffing in treatment rooms; Radiology reporting times; GP prescribing of Antibiotics; GP Remuneration and Consultant appointments.


The Trust also produces a newsletter specifically for GPs called “GP links”. This newsletter is designed to provide information about the Trust and its services. It features news about the Trust and its appointments, average waiting times for access to services and shares and promotes best practice across the Western Trust area.
