Biochemistry tutorial for GPs

Right test for the right patient at the right time

A tutorial has been developed by biochemistry to support the roll out of the integrated clinical environment (ICE) electronic requesting system across all GP practices in Southampton over the next few months.

The aims of this program are:

  • to help GPs apply biochemistry appropriately in the investigation and management of patients
  • to manage demand
  • for your continuing professional development (CPD)

Demand management will be a key feature of the ICE roll out and we believe it will deliver significant efficiency savings to the local health economy.

There will be a clinical case and a demand management case tutorials with links to accompanying key learning points. New tutorials will be posted regularly.

For further information or for any queries please contact Dr Emmanuel Abu, consultant chemical pathologist and clinical director of biochemistry by email or phone 023 8120 6434 / 6436. Or leave a comment on the key learning points pages.
