Urgent update on Pfizer/BioNTech vaccine and the involvement of GPs

The College has received information from NHS England this evening that general practice will have a much earlier role in delivery of the Pfizer/BioNTech vaccine than originally anticipated - and potentially as early as next week.

An update on the COVID-19 vaccination programme

GPs want to enable their patients but it’s very clear that we don’t have the time or space to do so. That’s why the College is persistent in our messaging that undoable workload is the greatest impediment to our ability to care for our patients.

Looking forward

In his final blog as Deputy Chair (Policy) for RCGP Scotland, Dr Alasdair Forbes reflects on the year, with a particular focus of the work of the College in improving the recruitment and retention challenges facing general practices. He also provides information on how you can help within Out of Hours and Covid Hubs over the festive period, if you have capacity and wish to do so.

How you can help us to help you in 2021

Dr Mair Hopkin, Joint Chair of RCGP Wales, explains how you can help her and Peter make the case for general practice in 2021.

Visit beautiful Fermanagh!

Dr Laurence Dorman, RCGPNI Chair, gives a welcome update on the COVID-19 vaccine, his meeting with the Finance Minister Conor Murphy, and encourages sessional GPs to experience working in scenic Fermanagh, plus much more.

General practice will continue to adapt but is open, has been open, and will stay open

In the midst of the pandemic, the values and standards of general practice haven’t changed: we continue to consult, to treat, to investigate and refer, to hear our patients' stories and share their experiences.
