COVID-19 Respiratory 'Hot' Hub
Herts Health GP Federation are working in collaboration with Herts Valleys CCG and Hertsmere practices to deliver a specialist 'Hot Hub' clinic in response to Coronavirus pandemic.
The clinic is designed to treat patients with Covid like symptoms who require physical examination but are not sick enough to be admitted to hospital.
The aim of the service is to provide prompt access to assessment whilst reducing the likelihood of patients with Covid-like symptoms coming into contact with other patients at their practices and also to reduce the risk to practice staff by redirecting patients to a specialist site, with adequate PPE and specialist protocols.
Alongside clinic-based appointments the hub also offers a home visiting service for those unable to get to the site.
Appointments are pre-booked only and arranged via referral from GP practices.
