Single Point of Access (SPA)
A new single point of access (SPA) number offers referring clinicians a single point of contact for the Dudley Macmillan Specialist Care at Home team and palliative care services around the borough. A central multi-disciplinary triage team will refer patients to the most appropriate part of the service. SPA will offer improved waiting time from referral to first contact/assessment. By removing duplication, SPA will make the referral process more efficient and streamlined.
