star this property answer text <p>Data on appointments in general practice have only been available since November 2017. The most recent data on the time between booking an appointment with a general practice and having the appointment (in days) for England are presented in the table below as the average over the 12 months from September 2018 to August 2019.</p><p>The data is taken from the NHS Digital publication ‘Appointments in General Practice’. This is a new experimental data collection which is still being refined and improved.</p><p>It should be noted that the ‘time from booking to appointment’ refers only to the time elapsed between the successful booking of an appointment and the appointment actually taking place. The data does not take into consideration that many patients will be appropriately booking ahead as part of the continuity of care they receive for long-term conditions.</p><table><tbody><tr><td><p>-</p></td><td><p>England</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>-</p></td><td><p>Distribution of average time elapsed between booking an appointment and the appointment taking place, September 2018 to August 2019.

This includes appointment availability at the practice, patient availability, the urgency of the appointment and GP advice.</p><p>- The data does not differentiate between emergency and routine appointments in general practice.</p><p>- The data does not include any information about the patients or clinical information</p><p>- The data in the response includes appointments with all healthcare professional types, including GPs and other practice staff.</p><p>- Not all practices in England are included in the appointments in general practice publication, meaning the total number of appointments is not known.</p><p>- Same day and next day bookings are of particular interest so are presented here separately. Further bookings are presented grouped by weeks.</p><p>- The number of appointments that have already happened is provided as recorded in participating practices in England. The data presented only contains information which was captured on the GP practice systems. This limits the activity reported on and does not represent all work happening within a primary care setting.</p>

Part of this investment will support the recruitment of over 1,000 trained social prescribing link workers in place by the end of 2020/21, rising further by 2023/24, with the aim that over 900,000 people are able to be referred to social prescribing schemes by then.</p><p> </p><p>NHS England and NHS Improvement are working to get all social prescribing services, local commissioners and providers involved in measuring the impact of social prescribing locally. It has developed a Common Outcomes Framework (COF) for social prescribing which will enable social prescribing connector schemes across the country to capture core impact data. This will help to create a consistent evidence base; support the business case; and, build a national picture of the impact of social prescribing. The outcomes cover three key areas: the impact on the person; the impact on community groups; and the impact on the health and care system. NHS England and NHS Improvement will be working with stakeholders in a phased approach over the next two years to embed the use of the measures in the COF for the evaluation of social prescribing schemes.</p><p>The COF can be found via the following link:</p><p><a href="http://www.england.nhs.uk/wp-content/uploads/2019/01/social-prescribing-community-based-support-summary-guide.pdf" target="_blank">www.england.nhs.uk/wp-content/uploads/2019/01/social-prescribing-community-based-support-summary-guide.pdf</a> <br></p><p>On 23 October 2019, the Government launched a new independent organisation: the National Academy for Social Prescribing, which is set to receive £5 million in grant funding from April next year to support its work. Since its development was announced in November 2018, the Department and NHS England have been working with a broad range of partners both in and out of Government to build consensus on the form and focus of the organisation in order that it deliver the greatest impact. The Academy will be working to: build and promote the evidence base for social prescribing and sharing best practice; developing training and accreditation across sectors; exploring new models and sources of funding; and, helping to broker relationships between sectors.</p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p>
