I have to say that working with Socrates software is very tedious for me. it is a series of tick boxes and to refer back to previous records is time consuming. Pre screening is done but I have frequently found that fields or photos are not done as there are too many patients trying to use the same machines. Specs avers don’t tend to cancel like Boots but the pressure is on with 20minute appointments. I can’t work that quickly and still write up reports,talk to my patients and do a thorough examination.
I was cancelled by Boots last year with 24hours notice! Very annoying!
Also Boots won’t help locums claim the CET so that leaves us in a bit of a mess!
