We are seeking enthusiastic and experienced General Practitioners to support the exciting launch of an Acute Visiting Service across North Staffordshire working as part of a team delivering an innovative service throughout the community.

The Acute Visiting Service (AVS) is designed to provide a timely response for patients requiring a home visit as determined by the patient’s own GP practice or West Midlands Ambulance Service(WMAS), addressing the immediate health needs of those patients who, if not seen promptly may ultimately be admitted to A & E or other onward referral.

The service aims to:

Reduce Emergency Admissions
Improve Patient Access
Release Capacity in GP Surgeries to enable Doctors to concentrate on planned care
Achieve better patient satisfaction with home visit assessment, further reducing risk of subsequent admission

 AVS Crew's are assigned to work across 3 designated localities starting and finishing the shift at one of the following designated sites,

1. Middleport x2 AVS Teams

2. Mier Health Centre x1 AVS Team

Vehicle, Driver and equipment provided for full duration of shift.
