The surgery has always aimed to include patients in any discussion over care management plans and referral choices but this is now being taken on board across all surgeries with the introduction of the MAGIC programme. Standing for “Making good decisions in collaboration”, we are striving to further meet this criteria by empowering patients in joint decision making processes during consultations.
Over the next few weeks, randomly selected patients will be asked to complete a brief survey about how they feel their consultation went. Our progress into shared decision making will then be analysed by a further survey some months down the line.
