The Aims and Objectives of Optimus
To develop a clinical education programme to deliver better clinical involvement and co-operation between General Practitioners and hospital Consultants.
For practices to work collaboratively with each other and to benchmark clinical standards and share management good practice – for example achieving and evidencing Care Quality Commission Standards
Optimus Healthcare Lincoln Limited intends to develop the new services in line with the new NHS environment and ensure that the patients of its practices receive the best care in a quality assured environment. Ensuring evidenced based best practice and accredited quality standards.
The practices want to ensure that they maintain and build on the high quality core values of traditional general practice; such as continuity of care, family based medicines and the familiarity that patients have with their own known GP practice. This does not mean old fashioned services, it means modern and evidence based services provided with traditional patient focused values.
Future relationships with patients
OPTIMUS believes that the most important relationship is between the patient and the practice team. GPs and their staff talk regularly to their patients on an individual basis, but this is mostly about their health care. In developing the Patient Liaison Group, we want to expand this conversation onto a wider level – on a continuing basis about our services, ensuring that patient’s collective views are represented.
