Streamline referrals across the PCN with central Digital Dictation

work across multiple sites

PCN aims to have GP's working across multiple sites can become complicated and expensive. GP time ends up wasted learning new systems and practices have to purchase additional licences for them. Use DigiScribe-XL across all practices to standardise the referral process at all sites.


If you are sharing Clinical staff across the PCN, take it one step further and share secretaries too. For every 5 GP's, 1 full-time secretary is needed for typing, if you have 3 practices with 3 GP's at each site and 1 secretary, have them share and reduce the need from 3 secretaries to 2. Sharing typing can also be used as a useful tool to share cover of holidays across practices.

Mobile Digital Dictation

referral reporting

Tying together the referral process allows PCNs to measure performance against KPI's such as the number of referrals and referral turnaround times. Our reporting module will also allow you to analyse who is referring what, and more importantly which practices are referring issues to hospitals which could be referred to another practice ie. Sexual Health


Using DigiScirbe-XL across the PCN will create significant cost reduction for practices. From saving on secretary time or agency typing, the PCN is guaranteed to see a ROI. PCNs will find the highest savings through the reporting module, when used to analyse the referral process across practices, being able to identify expensive gaps and/or failures has proved to save practices thousands every year.
