Care Home Support Service
Taurus Healthcare, on behalf of Herefordshire General Practice, provided direct medical support by telephone and video to Herefordshire care homes.
Set up during the COVID19 pandemic, the service provided additional weekend support to care homes for residents who were unwell or who had a non-emergency and non-COVID related medical need.
Care homes could contact a Taurus Clinician direct between the hours of 11.00 am and 4.00 pm on Saturdays and Sundays, without having to go through NHS111.
The service proved invaluable in supporting care homes during the pressurised times they faced due to COVID19.
