Eligible patients for Covid treatment should call 111

Please remind all staff that eligible patients reporting a positive test should be advised to call 111 urgently for an assessment for COVID-19 treatment. They will determine which treatment, if any, is suitable, and make any necessary arrangements for prescribing oral treatments for dispensing at a community pharmacy, or for a hospital referral if intravenous treatment is needed. Please do not refer patients to the Acute Trust as this delays treatments for patients. For any further queries, please contact hweicbhv.medicinesoptimisationteam@nhs.net.
