First Care steps up to support GP’s in North Devon

October 13, 2020

The NHS is preparing for winter and services will be stepped up to support increasing numbers of patients and the increase in Covid-19 cases.

First Care will be supporting across many areas. At the beginning of November a new service will start to support GP’s in North Devon. First Care Paramedics will make home visits to assess patients and provide GP’s with a comprehensive triage report. This service will allow GP’s to focus their time on meeting demand at Surgeries whilst ensuring that those patients who require home visits will continue to receive a timely and comprehensive service.
