Former Worth student Daniel Grace, now working as a GP, has been recognised for his work during the pandemic with an award from the South Central Ambulance Service NHS Foundation Trust.
The CCAS Clinical Assessment Service was perhaps unheard of by many, but it brought together a workforce of remote GPs from across the UK to triage and advise thousands of patients with symptoms of Covid-19. Some were locums, others worked alongside their usual jobs and many came out of retirement.
Daniel, who was in Farwell and left in 2005, played his part in this initiative. Many patients required signposting and reassurance, some required further assessment and others emergency ambulance dispatch.
Daniel said: “I am proud to have been part of a service that perhaps went under the radar, but played a key part in community management and triage during the various lockdowns that have occurred over the past 18 months.”
Many congratulations Daniel!
