As a clinician, I’m going to try my hardest to remember our patient-centred roots

General practice prides itself on being patient-centred, rather than focusing narrowly on presenting problems or diseases. It’s challenging, often draining, but it’s why patients trust us and it’s what makes us effective. I guess that’s why, at the height of the COVID crisis, I felt both relieved and guilty that I had permission to narrow my focus.

Back to school

Dr Carey Lunan, Chair of RCGP Scotland, reflects on what the return to school for thousands of children and young people across Scotland means for general practice.

Remote consultations: striking the right balance for patient access

Dr Laurence Dorman, RCGPNI Chair, discusses remote consultations, pain management and leadership in general practice.

Thinking about 'what if?'

Dr Mair Hopkin, Joint Chair of RCGP Wales, asks 'what if?' as she considers how we can emerge strongly from the pandemic.

Update on future sittings of the RCA

With the July RCA complete, and the August diet soon to conclude, I am pleased to now be able to share further clarity around timings for the RCA in November, and to confirm further sittings of the RCA for next year, says Dr Michael Mulholland, RCGP Vice Chair for Professional Development.

Immunisation is key

One of the positives from recent months has been the greater focus on population health and within this, immunisation is key. General Practice responded in the 1960s with the delivery of the smallpox vaccine and again in 2010 following swine flu. We need to do the same again. This won’t be easy, but it is of high relevance and priority and I know that GPs will rise to the challenge as we always do.
