We are trying to work out the best way of getting our patient notes summarised, in good time. Has anyone employed someone with the specific intention of carrying this out, and if so do you have any tips or job descriptions please? Thank you

Hi Sarah

We employ a qualified nurse to summarise our records. She generally works approximately four hours per week on a 'freelance' basis and so does not have a contract. Have you thought of asking your P.N. if she might be prepared to take on a few extra hours per week to carry this out for you?

I didn't have a job description but one of my colleagues has very kindly given me a copy of hers. It's basic but covers the job anyhow!!

Good Luck
