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.
