RAPID-P : Register GP Practice

RAPID-P is an innovative, patient-led tool designed to successfully implement NICE NG12 guidance to triage and fast track patients experiencing upper GI symptom.

RAPID-P has been developed in partnership between Westcliffe Health Innovations and Oberoi Consulting, following a Health Foundation's Innovating for Improvement Programme Grant.

Underpinned by evidence based medicine and integrating patient care, outcomes and choice throughout the pathway, RAPID-P aims to deliver:

  • Referral of less than 2 weeks, and definitive diagnosis within 4 weeks, for all high-risk patients

  • Prioritising for timely and appropriate reviews of patients experiencing upper GI symptoms RAPID-P is free and available nationally to individual, federated and CCG wide primary care practices who are seeking to improve early diagnosis and timely triaging of suspected upper GI malignancy within a patient-centric system.

The availability of RAPID-P can be communicated to patients through your patients communication channels such as practice website, waiting room posters, and patient groups.

If you are a GP practice, or medical centre, and would like to enroll your practice please fill in your details below and we will get back to you as soon as your registration has been verified.

After completing the questionnaire, and the user chooses to send to their anonymised report to the practice / provider, they will need to add some contact details (either a phone number or email) so that an appointment / referral can be arranged.

Once an appointment / referral has been made, the practice can then confirm the details via email, text message or a phone call.

If you are a GP practice, or medical centre, and you would like to enrol in the RAPID-P scheme, please fill in your details below and we will get back to you as soon as we are able.

The verification process will involve electronic, written or verbal verification.
