This is a call out to other Therapists and general professionals that work in busy, often chaotic, environments. Demands on healthcare professionals are ever-increasing as we juggle clinical time with accompanying administration, handovers, meetings, planning and input surrounding safeguarding, referring onto other services and more. To those of you that are in roles where you are responsible for managing your time, I wondered what feedback you might have for the things that work and the things that could do with improving when it comes to having a streamlined daily process. For example, how many sets of clinical notes do you write: just in the patient file, or for your own files too? How many referral documents do you require in order to see a patient? How do you manage unforeseen events that happen and need following up within the working day? Please do let me know by commenting below!
