New COVID-19 clinics to support patients with suspected or confirmed COVID-19 are now open across Oxfordshire. A home visiting service will also become available soon for people suffering from coronavirus who are deemed suitable for this and need support in their own home. This service is supported by GPs and community staff from Oxford Health NHS Foundation Trust (OHFT).
The clinics and home visiting service will bring together clinicians and resources to support patients with coronavirus in the community.
Appointments for the clinics and support are arranged over the telephone either via the patient’s GP practice or via NHS111. The clinics are only for patients with a pre-arranged appointment; they are not a walk in facility.
Precautions are being taken in each clinic to reduce the risk of spreading the infection. This is to protect patients, staff and the general public.
Clinics are being set up in a number of places locally, including Wallingford, Didcot, Abingdon and East Oxford
