A case study looking at how practice based paramedics are improving access in  the South Kent coast.

Region: South



The aim of the service is to minimise the disruption of home visits to GP surgery schedules and reduce the number of A&E attendances. The paramedic practitioner service provides a seven day per week visiting service in collaboration with local GP practices and the 8am-8pm hubs in Folkestone and Dover.
