Covid Clinical Assessment Service

NHS111 Online is the first port of call for people with COVID-19 symptoms and NHS 111 has been commissioned nationally to provide a dedicated COVID-19 Response Service in support of the population. The service continues to support General Practices and other parts of the NHS to focus on managing those most at risk of complications from COVID-19.

A key component of the Covid-19 Response Service is the COVID-19 Clinical Assessment Service (CCAS). The CCAS offers a clinical review to the assessment of patients presenting with Covid-19 symptoms following their use of NHS111.

To deliver this service we are seeking additional GP’s and Returning GP’s to join this highly valued team. You will be employed to remotely support CCAS from home with equipment and training offered to ensure high quality clinical triage on which the healthcare system can rely.
