All fast-track applications must be completed and submitted by an appropriate clinician. An appropriate clinician is defined as a person who is:
The appropriate clinician should be knowledgeable about the individual’s health needs, diagnosis, treatment or care and be able to provide an assessment of why the individual meets the fast-track criteria.
Others who are not appropriate clinicians as described, but are involved in supporting those with end-of-life needs, may identify that the individual has needs for which use of the fast-track pathway tool might be appropriate. They should contact the appropriate clinician and ask for consideration to be given to its completion.
All fast-track applications must be submitted to NHS Dorset using an online portal called DRAR. Access can be requested by contacting us at: firstname.lastname@example.org
If you do not have access to DRAR please do not delay in sending NHS Dorset the completed fast-track tool, and NHS consent form. Please email the documents to email@example.com and arrange your DRAR access at a later date. Please clearly mark in the subject header “fast-track application”.
