About the Service

Access to treatments for Covid changed on Tuesday 27th June 2023.

Since December 2021, new COVID-19 treatments have been offered through a nationally commissioned service to people who are at the highest risk of becoming seriously ill and test positive in the community

Treatments will now be offered locally to those patients who are at the highest risk

Letters have been sent out by the national team, to the highest risk patients (June 2023). Copy available below under ‘additional information’

The treatments include nMABs (neutralizing monoclonal antibodies) infusions and oral antivirals.

The treatments are a key element in the offer to higher risk patients, reducing hospital admissions and death

The model adopted across Rugby, Coventry and Warwickshire ICS consists of an end to end integrated approach, with primary care, acute secondary care hubs supporting local patients, and community follow up

The Federation Collaborative COVID@home service will triage all patients referred via the national web view platform and referrals made by GPs, NHS 111 and CWPT

Patients will be streamed to the right outcome service (infusion, antivirals or community management)

All patients (irrespective of whether or not they are eligible for medication) will be followed up by the virtual ward team as appropriate.

Action required by GP

If your patient is possibly eligible for medication or contacts the practice because they have received a message suggesting they may be eligible for medication, please complete the attached form.

It only requires you to tick a single box and the team will triage, advise and consent the patient as well as organise referral as appropriate to an acute service.

Monitoring will also be organised.

The team will document information in the patient’s EMIS notes.

An updated EMIS version of the form is available – please use latest version
