The virus that will change general practice forever

Press Release

This month’s issue of Pulse magazine is of course completely focused on the Covid-19 pandemic. We provide resources for GPs on how to triage patients, how to prepare their practices for the revolutionary change in their working over the next few months. We provide legal advice on managing staff at a time when many will be having to self isolate.

Our columnists all tackle how they have been affected by the crisis, with a hopeful message from Copperfield on whether this will lead to a change in attitude from politicians and patients, and Nabi reflects on how we will all remember where we were when we discovered the scale of this crisis.

The cover feature takes a long term look at how this will change general practice forever, including the role of remote consultations and the potential downgrading of regulatory processes.

In non-Covid-19 features, we look at rationing in the NHS and provide answers to key questions on hyperlipidaemia, as well as top tips on autism-friendly consultations.
