Coronavirus – Discussions with an Emergency Department doctor

Coronavirus – Discussions with an Emergency Department doctor

February 1, 2021

GP Dr Camilla Janssen discusses with Emergency Department Consultant Helen Keeton about how secondary care is dealing with COVID in terms of numbers through the door, flow through the hospital, clinical assessment and management of these patients. Overview of how they assess a patient’s oxygen requirement. An understanding of the criteria secondary care use to determine severity and likely deterioration. They also cover the information used to inform a patients' discharge and an understanding when secondary care would like us to refer patients back into their service for further assessment. This will help us give a consistent joined up message across primary and secondary care, which can only be done if we have a good understanding of what our secondary care colleagues are doing. We continue to learn from each other in these evolving and uncertain times.

Covid Assessment and Management

Covid Assessment and Management

January 18, 2021

Recorded Friday 15th January 2021

Dr Camilla Janssen talks to Dr Sarah Kay and Dr Caroline Warren Clinical Governance Medical Leads for the National COVID Clinical Assessment Service (CCAS). CCAS GPs work supporting 111 to assess patients presenting with COVID sounding symptoms remotely and then to manage/signpost/advise appropriately. Sarah and Caroline are well placed as GPs to give us a practical walk-through of appropriate assessment and management of COVID, stratifying COVID risk, advice about remote assessment of breathlessness, identifying red flags, identifying when patients need a F2F review and what the most appropriate setting for this is. Safety net resources and advice as well as discussion from a GP perspective on Oximetry at home. They will advise about resources available for us to use and discuss the appropriateness of prescribing for COVID in the community setting.
