Paramedic Acute Visiting Service (PAVS)


Practices can request a Paramedic to visit a patient at home on behalf of a GP. The key objective is to reduce avoidable hospital admissions by providing a timely response to patients requiring a visit, and ensuring patients are cared for at home if appropriate.
