Dr Bruce Allan
When Covid arrived in Sussex we immediately knew that we needed to act to protect and support our most vulnerable populations. Our first priority was our large care home population. Building on our excellent relationships with Sussex GP providers we rapidly commissioned an out of hours service to provide weekend cover for our care home population, directly from their registered GP practice, thereby delivering personalised care 7 days a week. Rapid implementation delivered a service which proved effective for patients, as well as popular and appreciated by care home staff and GP practices.
