In the past couple of days I’ve used DORIS to look up
- A telephone number for Miss Lloyd, a new ENT consultant at Kent & Sussex who isn’t listed on their website
- A telephone number for Dr Mankragod, who also isn’t listed on the hospital website
- Rules for funding of IVF treatment
- Rules for funding of sex change treatment
All the information was up-to-date and easy to find. There’s no doubt in my mind that DORIS as a resource not only saves time and increases efficiency in the surgery, but improves our awareness of (and adherence to) the proper care pathways, which saves the NHS money and saves the patients a lot of frustration.
I find DORIS invaluable for checking that documents held here are the latest version plus having access to protocols means I don’t have to start from scratch with my own. It is a real asset to the practice having accurate data in one place and accessible by all staff. Changes and updates to the site are made promptly giving confidence that the information held is as current as possible. Overall I recommend the site and would be sorry to lose it.
We find the DORIS site invaluable. It is so helpful having one site to go to where we can find up-to-date, local information covering all aspects of the running of the surgery. We look forward to the on-going developments of the site.
