About the service:
Sheffield GP Collaborative is a centre of excellence supporting the Primary Care out of hour’s provision of urgent primary care for the population of Sheffield. The unit has a combination of GPs, Advanced Nurse Practitioners, Health Care assistants and administration team working together, providing high quality care within a supported friendly, modern, well equipped environment.
The GP Collaborative (GPC) is based at the Northern General Hospital site within the new Helipad building co located near the Emergency Department. Referrals to the GPC are triaged by a clinician, if further clinical assessment is required patients will be advised to attend the GPC for a face to face clinical assessment or where indicated seen by a clinician at home for assessment and possible treatment. We work closely with the Emergency Department as well as other community services to ensure patients’ urgent primary care needs are met out of hours. Patients attending ED with health needs that are deemed urgent primary care are referred to the GPC throughout the 24 hour period, where they are seen by a clinician as required.
