Liverpool Virtual Ward Pathway
Liverpool COVID-19 Virtual Ward pathway provides support for patients that have been diagnosed with, or have suspected symptoms of COVID-19 and would benefit from closer monitoring for signs of deterioration.
Patients are identified and referred by their GP. The Telehealth Team will ensure that patients receive short-term (14 days) oxygen saturation, BP and temperature monitoring.
This service aims to help identify patients with early deterioration and escalate to appropriate medical care and also support patients to remain at home, relieve pressure on primary care and reduce unnecessary hospital presentation or admission.
