ABSTRACT
The article compares nurse led dyspepsia clinic service with the standard medical outpatient model. In an attempt to reduce outpatient waiting lists, a nurse led dyspepsia clinic was set up. A consultant identified suitable primary care referrals and patients seen by a specialist nurse (SpN) were interviewed in a clinic run in parallel with a specialist registrar (SpR) and consultant. Patients were interviewed by the SpN according to a proforma set up for the management of patients with dyspepsia. Patient and primary care physician dissatisfaction with the nurse led clinic were recorded.
