A well organised, professional and highly responsive team who clearly wanted to help our local practices as part of the PCN COVID Vaccination programme, in planning large groups of vaccinations for housebound patients. The team engaged to understand the need and context, and were quick to identify the key questions, data set, work through relevant information governance and technical details. Clarity was sought when needed and issues addressed in a timely manner. A great outcome in a high paced programme!” Allison Nation, Associate Director – Digital Strategy, Somerset CCG

  • The benefits

The GIS team assisted at short notice in allocating our 220ish housebound patient groups into ordered geographical groups. With 3 practices and crossing over lists/ geographical areas it is a way in which the housebound vaccinating can be organised without the need for agonising lists and cross referencing between practices. The templates are clear and functional and the time allocation per vial of AZ 6 hours as well as sensible prediction of times with patients allows a clear representation of what is possible. The team add in the travelling times and provide a clear estimation of total time required per vial. We have found the team approachable and responsive. They have risen to our last minute demands with efficiency and professionalism. In short, the exercise has been time well spent.” Dr Sally di Mambro, GP principle/partner at Wellington Medical Centre/Taunton Deane West PCN
