The Map of Medicine programme is well underway and some exciting progress is already being made in the reviewing of pathways which include Gastroenterology, Cardiovascular Disease, and other clinical priority areas.

Many thanks to everyone who’s contributed so far, and if you’d like to get involved, perhaps for a specific clinical specialism, please do let us know.

We are hoping to go live in September, so please watch this space for further information. In the meantime, you will soon be contacted by USS to get the Map of Medicine tool installed onto your computer systems. This shouldn’t take long, and should be done with minimal disruption over late mornings and dinner times.

Soon after, a training schedule will be released for our surgery champions. These people, who will be identified nearer the time by practice managers, will undergo training and act as a point of reference for the rest of the practice team. The training will give a brief overview of how the system works and give everyone plenty of time to ask questions and identify any extra training needs.

If you have any questions regarding Map of Medicine, please contact Mark Beadling who is the project manager for this initiative on [email protected]
