Awarded to the NHS organisation which has implemented swift and successful measures in order to cope with the COVID 19 pandemic.
Somerset NHS Foundation Trust
At Bridgwater Community Hospital, which is managed by the Somerset NHS Foundation Trust, nurse practitioners and colleagues from the community urgent care service collaborated with the local Primary Care Network and the local CCG to set up and run a safe PAC. This involved all GP practices in the network conducting remote consultations and any patient who gave cause for clinical concern being directed to the PAC where they underwent a comprehensive assessment and, if required, treatment.
