This is an exciting opportunity to join a team working on an Innovate UK-funded project developing and evaluating an artificial intelligence (AI) system to triage GP appointment requests in primary care – Patient Automated Triage and Clinical Hub Scheduling (PATCHS). The ultimate aim of PATCHS is to reduce GP appointment waiting times and increase availability for those that need them most.
You will assist with qualitative and quantitative process evaluation aspects of the research, which will complement the main quantitative evaluation of PATCHS’ performance. You will use observational and interview-based methods to understand how PATCHS is implemented in practice, and the factors affecting it’s use and uptake.
