As the leading system in the country for recruitment of new roles under the Additional Roles Reimbursement Scheme (AARS), in BSol we know the difference these hundreds of new staff are making a big difference in primary care. However, we also know that our patients often don’t know about the new roles and can sometimes be hesitant to seeing a healthcare professional other than their GP.

With this in mind, the GP Provider Support Unit have collaborated with the BSol Training Hub to co-produce a series of case study videos with ARRS staff in our local PCN workforce. They are helping to ensure patients receive the Right Access First Time and these videos help our patients to understand how.

One of the additional roles that work within our teams are Paramedics. Patients often associate Paramedics with ambulances only, but they are now also embedded in practices to see and assess patients, carry out home visits and support the wider multidisciplinary team with patient care.
