What work are we doing during the COVID-19 Pandemic? A huge change in the way we work has taken up hours of time and also we have had to contact patients at risk, change appointments and had lots of individual queries.
IMMUNISATIONS are vital to continue—otherwise we will have a Measles or Mumps epidemic. We see plenty of Whooping cough already so need to continue with these.
Injections/treatments for cancers such as hormone injections, dressings
Blood monitoring for certain drugs
Assessing first by phone and then seeing patients (wearing full protective gear) for urgent/ serious symptoms.
We are still doing routine reviews where we can but doing these via telephone or video link consultations, and using email where possible
