The last 12 month

We are continuing our Covid-19 vaccinations, based at the Meres Leisure Centre in Grantham, as well as out-reach vaccine clinics to care homes, housebound patients and other vulnerable members of our population. We have also provided vaccines at local factories. We have now administered 180,000 vaccines.

We are developing a diabetes pathway to improve services and access for all our diabetic patients.

We are developing a specialist asthma pathway to improve management of our asthmatic patients, and also identify our patients with severe/complicated asthma and facilitate timely referral to tertiary clinics and to access new and specialised treatments. We have also been involved in rolling out the “Turbo-Plus” inhaler device, which enables closer monitoring of the use and efficacy of inhaler devices on an individual patient basis. This device links with a patients mobile phone.

We are deploying paramedics and developing paramedic roles in our primary care setting.

We are continuing to support our practices resilience through the Additional Roles Reimbursement Scheme (ARRS); employing clinical pharmacists, musculoskeletal (MSK) practitioners, occupational therapists and care coordinators, and supporting and developing neighbourhood working across our population.
