What is the purpose of the Drive-Through-Care service (DTC)?
1. To enable people to book to see a GP/Nurse face to face about an urgent but not life threatening health problem. It is a drive-through version of an Urgent Treatment or Walk-in Centre.
2. Problems include illness that started recently and can be dealt with in a GP surgery. Examples are skin problems, headaches, cough and colds, earache, sore throat, sickness and diarrhoea, insect bites and stings, infection or swelling of skin and scalp, minor injuries where the skin isn’t broken and you can walk without help; tummy pain, constipation, period pains, emergency contraception within 72 hours of unprotected sex, ingrowing toenails; backache, neck ache or joint problems.
3. Assessment includes asking questions about the problem and your general health, taking your temperature, oxygen level, pulse, blood pressure, and examining the problem area as needed.
