This car is one of four replacements for the Out of Hours Doctors cars for BrisDoc in Bristol. Four more cars are due to come into service in early 2020. Due to the change in contract in providing Out Of hours provision, SevernSide integrated Urgent Care Service was formed and gone into
partnership with the 111 service. This model of care is the new standard of Urgent Care within the NHS 999/111 service and will become operational across the UK in the coming year allowing Doctors, Nurses & Paramedics to attend home visits.
