Dr Paul Baughan

This Forth Valley GP stepped up to create and support a new care home assessment and response team for 2,000 care home residents dealing with Covid-19 outbreaks.  The team operates seven days a week to help residents who are symptomatic or who test positive for the virus. Dr Baughan ensured anticipatory care plans were up to date and that oxygen access and contingency medicines were available. He has also kept GPs up to date on the impact of Covid-19 on care home residents by holding video calls throughout the peak.  ‘He has done so much more, including managing to run a marathon in his back garden for Meningitis Now – with live coverage,’ says Dr Sarah Zacheshigriva, who nominated him.
