Map of medicine

Map of Medicine provides over 400 patient pathways, based on the most up to date research and clinical evidence available.

Each pathway will describe the patient’s journey and include details of local services in the community, through hospitals and via voluntary organisations and charities, complete with all the referral forms and key policies attached.

GPs can access information on care pathways across a wide range of conditions to ensure they consistently give the same level of care to patients to all 22 GP practices across the patch.

The aim is to make it the one ‘go to place’ for all the information the GP requires.

It will also encourage joint decision-making between patient and doctor and empower 201 GPs to deliver the best possible care.
