HPV outcome codes: manual PMS update (Medtech)
Medtech users would have received release notes confirming that the HPV outcome codes have been updated in your PMS. Unfortunately, the updated codes that were released for Medtech practices do not match the nationally recommended outcome codes. To mitigate clinical risk and to ensure overall data consistency please manually update your PMS to reflect the nationally recommended HPV outcome codes. The codes, instructions on how to do this can be found here.

Dr. Jo Scott-Jones advocates for the use of the term "GPwER" (GP with Extended Roles) instead of "GPwSI" (GP with Special Interest).

In this article, Dr. Jo takes a close look at GPwER to answer the question; what's in a name?

If you are in a pickle with an aspect of your practice population care (immunisation, cervical screening, CVRAs), Jo Scott-Jones suggests reviewing, judging and and acting on a "set piece" response.
