Covid Clinical Assessment Service

NHS 111 online is the first port of call for people with COVID-19 symptoms. NHS 111 has been commissioned nationally to provide a dedicated COVID-19 response service to free general practices and other areas of the healthcare system to focus on managing those most at risk of complications from COVID-19.

This has been set up as the COVID-19 Clinical Assessment Service (CCAS). The CCAS has been set up to manage patients who require a discussion with a clinician following their use of NHS 111.

To deliver this service we are mobilising additional workforce, including from the experienced returning clinicians’ community. You will be employed to remotely support CCAS to ensure high quality clinical triage on which the healthcare system can rely.
