Dr Caroline O'Keeffe

GP Partner and Clinical Director
Camrose Gillies and Hackwood Partnership

I am a North Hampshire GP and PCN Clinical Director, with a background in Infectious Disease and Tropical Medicine, who led the North Hampshire COVID Assessment and Visiting Hub for the first wave of COVID. We came together as a system of 6 PCNs covering 230,000 patients to provide safe care for patients with possible COVID using both a clinic and a drive through model. We worked closely with our CCG, hospital and community colleagues to streamline our response for our patients, and are now expanding the model ready for the second wave to provide COVID/Flu testing, and wraparound home monitoring with pulse oximetry and a Virtual Ward service.
