The COVID-19 situation is rapidly changing and we recommend that GPs ensure they are receiving updates from their local CCG.
GPs can also review the current NHS guidance for primary care.
The AHSN Network also holds useful resources and information on Patient Safety in Primary Care during COVID-19.
GPs may be interested in our 2020 webinars delivered with the Royal College of GPs on COVID-19:
- COVID-19 and children: what the busy clinician needs to know.
- Patient assessment – the role of physiology and oximetry.
- Overview of training and digital support to Care Home staff.
Follow this link for the recording, presentation and further information related to our Primary Care in Care Homes during COVID-19 webinar. This webinar was held in May 2020.
As well as a webinar for the West of England region on the training and digital support available for care homes.
