Learning from the consequences of tough decisions

We all know that the UK’s response to COVID-19 does not compare well with that of other countries. We’ve not fared poorly because of lack of commitment or effort on anyone’s part but let’s not allow anyone to pretend that we’re in a good place.

Our relationship with our patient community

Dr Laurence Dorman, RCGPNI Chair, highlights the purpose of patient involvement groups and provides an update on rescheduled College events.

The upcoming launch of Pharmacy First Scotland

Pharmacy First is a revamped consultation-based service which encourages all those living in Scotland to visit their community pharmacy as the first port of call for all minor illnesses and common clinical conditions, says Dr Carey Lunan, Chair of RCGP Scotland.

A new campaign for post-COVID-19 general practice

There will be a lot of voices seeking to shape what the ‘new normal’ will look like and the General Practice in the Post-COVID World report gives a clear steer on what steps can make a tangible difference in general practice, says Dr Mair Hopkin, Joint Chair of RCGP Wales.

Thank you from your College

I am writing to thank you for the commitment that you, and your colleagues in training, have demonstrated over the past four months, says Dr Michael Mulholland, RCGP Vice Chair for Professional Development.

Shaping the future and standing up for the profession

If GPs stop watching and stop waiting, it is likely that many more patients will suffer than will benefit. And the NHS will collapse in the face of unnecessary action.
