General Practice P-RESET work is therefore restricted to remote/phone assessment of opiate dependent patients in shared care with RESET, and OST prescription (methadone or buprenorphine) to pharmacies. This will continue to be done in partnership with CGL RESET Treatment Service, who are also assessing patients’ needs remotely.
TH Clinicians, please visit the GP Care Group Clarity webpage (link available in the GP Care Group daily Covid Communications) for the P-RESET FAQs.
An opportunity to really deliver shared Care
In Oct 2017 LBTH Public Health and the Drug & Alcohol Action Team (DAAT) commissioned the TH GP Care Group to deliver a new integrated approach to problem drug and alcohol use.
Services are based in our local GP Surgeries and are open to all Tower Hamlets registered patients* through referral.
In order to deliver this new approach to Shared Care, we have partnered with our colleagues at the East London Foundation Trust (ELFT), who run the RESET Treatment Service. Under the new programme we deliver the following services in GP Practices:
Dr. Anna LivingstoneTH Substance Misuse Clinical Lead
Ruth WaltersTH GP Care Group Director of Quality & Assurance
