Pulse March 2021 cover

Pulse looks at most likely, best, worst and the Armageddon scenarios, and come to the conclusion that it is too early as yet to share the Prime Minister’s confidence that this will be over by June.

Elsewhere, we examine the issues with the low uptake of the Covid vaccines among black, Asian and minority ethnic patients, as well as the change to the structure of the NHS, and the new GP contract. Our CPD this month looks into how to identify and support victims of domestic abuse.

In the clinical section, we have the second part of our feature on HIV, as well as guides on using pulse oximetry and steroids cards.
