2020 has been a challenging and unusual year for everyone. Although it feels like a lifetime ago after the events in the months that followed, we held our first Advisory Board meeting in January, and have some positive news to share from feedback we gathered on the day.
One of the biggest issues that was raised is that a lot of locum doctors do not feel that they get the same access to career, training and revalidation support as those who undertake more permanent positions. As a result of this feedback, we have been working hard to begin securing partnerships that allow locum doctors access to training courses, patient and colleague feedback packages and more, at discounted rates.
We’re thrilled to announce that one of these new partnerships is with Edgecumbe Doctor 360 who are offering Athona doctors a discount code for reduced rates for Colleague and Patient Feedback packages, including use of a brand new user-friendly system equipped with remote patient feedback functionality. Doctors can use this portal to obtain feedback via iPad, or by asking a team member to send the patient a link after their consultation to provide feedback. This new technology solution overcomes the issue of GMC paper based collection on feedback, and is a much smoother and quicker process.
Outlined below are the reduced rates on offer:
|Package||Standard Price||2022 Discount Price|
|Colleague Feedback (Online)||£75+vat (£90)||£37+vat (£44.40)|
|Patient Feedback (Online)||£65+vat (£78)||£37+vat (£44.40)|
|Patient Feedback (Paper* & Online)||£75+vat (£90)||£57+vat (£68.40)|
|Colleague & Patient Feedback (Online)||£85+vat (£102)||£50+vat (£60)|
|Colleague & Patient Feedback (Paper* & Online patient access)||£95 (£114)||£70+vat (£84)|
