Derby Urgent Care Centre - Changes


From 1 November 2018, Derby Urgent Care Centre (DUCC) will be operating a nurse-led model of care for patients in Derbyshire. All current services will remain the same however patients will no longer be seen by a GP. Patients will be seen and treated by a range of clinicians including Advanced Nurse Practitioner (ANP) who will be able to prescribe and offer advice and support to patients. ANPs will be able to make clinical decisions and if they need to, they will seek advice from an on-call GP via telephone where necessary. All patients will be triaged by a nurse and then prioritised for treatment.


The CCG will be working closely with One Medical Group (OMG) to minimise the impact. There will also be a three month review to support the transition.

Removal of patients policy

Removal of patients due to breakdown in GP/patient relationship


The most common situation is where a patient exhibits unacceptable behaviour that may lead to a breakdown in GP/patient relationships.  This may include persistent verbal abuse, unreasonable attitudes towards staff or advice/treatment given, persistent demands for unreasonable services that cannot be met, persistent failure to attend appointments, fraudulent or criminal behaviour, etc. 


In most cases the patient should be given the opportunity to moderate their behaviour and the practice sends a written warning letter.  This should explain the unacceptable behaviour/situation and advise that a repetition may result in removal from the practice list. If the unacceptable behaviour is repeated and a warning letter has been sent within the last 12 months the practice can remove the patient under the 8-day rule citing breakdown in GP/Patient relationship.  The patient should be sent a further letter advising the reason for their removal and that the patient has 8 days to register with another GP.
