South East COVID Pathway

The South East COVID Pathway is operated by Sandringham Ambulatory and Community Care (SACC) in partnership with the South East Metro Health Service Partnership (SEMHSP). The pathway was developed to support GPs in managing COVID-19 positive patients in the community and provides advice and streamlined escalation of care of patients at risk and in the event of deterioration. SACC provide patient monitoring and will handover vulnerable patients with ongoing concerns needing follow up and leaving the program, to GPs.
