CHS Healthcare, a provider of patient flow solutions to the NHS, is delighted to announce their partnership with Guys and St Thomas’ NHS Foundation Trust to provide domiciliary phlebotomy and swabbing services to their shielded patients, in the safety of their own homes. CHS Healthcare’s team are coordinating phlebotomy support to both adults and children who have been required to stay at home during the Covid pandemic. The swabbing programme delivers MRSA and Covid testing in advance of elective surgical admissions. The service was established within a record two weeks and will support the ongoing care of hundreds of patients each week.
CHS Healthcare’s Chief Executive, Dr Gabrielle Silver, said of the service “ We are very proud to be able to help a leading trust such as Guy’s and St Thomas’ in their objective to help vulnerable patient groups. We are confident that this service will provide the reassurance to those shielding in the community, whilst also ensuring they continue to receive the highest quality of care”.
The service, which commenced at the beginning of June, is enabled by a bespoke patient management system that CHS Healthcare has developed to ensure the effective tracking and follow up of all the community based patients.
