A forward thinking GP provider in Thurrock brings the expertise of a Paramedic – Emergency Care Practitioner to GP surgeries in the area.
Dr Pro Mallik, Medical Director, College Health, has engaged Sue Finan, ECP, to support unscheduled patient care for patients in and around Grays, Tilbury and Corringham. Dr Mallik hopes to embed this community practitioner service across all College Health surgeries. Sue joins a small team of carefully selected, qualified and experienced specialists as the new first port of call for all unplanned home visit and urgent care requests as well as essential support to the GP’s looking after the care needs of patients in care homes in the area.
In addition to work out in the community, Sue also supports the GPs in surgeries including; Oddfellows Hall Health Centre and the Commonwealth Health Centre (formerly Shehadeh Medical Centres), taking triage calls and assessing patient requirements for support from a medical professional in the surgery or a home visit. She is able to update patient records from her mobile computer so that GPs can quickly see their patient’s treatment plan.
