Data suggests that fewer people have been booking appointments with their GP during the COVID-19 pandemic, meaning they could be missing out on vital care as a result. For people living in the most deprived areas of the UK, who are already at increased risk of isolation and multiple long-term health conditions, this could have devastating effects. To address this, seven GP practices in Sheffield worked together during the pandemic to develop a proactive home visiting service for their most vulnerable patients.
