Emergency Care Practitioners (ECPS)
Paul Banham is our Emergency Care Practitioner and he carries out a number of tasks at Horsefair, a couple of examples are: Clinical Triage and Acute Home Visits. The introduction of the ECP role at Horsefair has dramatically improved life for GPs. Paul also performs home visits throughout the day, which means that the patients no longer have to wait for the Doctor to finish their clinic.
