Dr Simon Bowers, General Practitioner at Fulwood Green Medical Centre in Aigburth and Medical Director of Liverpool Networks Alliance, said: "Reaching out to Patchwork was one of the best decisions we've made during the whole pandemic.
"I've been involved in digital leadership for 10 years, and I've never experienced such painless, customer-focused and efficient service before - completing the implementation of an easy-to-use system in a matter of days. I hope our relationship continues long after the pandemic."
Dr Anas Nader, CEO of Patchwork Health, said: "We're proud to have partnered with this innovative network for GP practices and even prouder to be playing a crucial role in Liverpool's efforts to tackle the Covid-19 pandemic.
"We hope that our digital staffing solution will go some ways towards relieving the pressures on frontline health workers in Liverpool, and to helping the city's health system to develop the resilience needed to overcome the challenges which lie ahead."
