This week we're joined by GP Dr James Thambyrajah to talk about the first episode of the new series of Hospital on BBC2. This was filmed as the first lockdown started and shows the impact on patients and their families as their investigations and treatment are delayed. We consider this from a primary care perspective- how can we support our patients throught this? We shouldn't forget about our own wellbeing and that of our colleagues too...
We have the usual look at the medical news headlines and also the week in daytime TV. What have our patients been watching that might get them to contact us?
