Introducing Pulse's 'Clinical Crises' series

Clinical guides to support you to support patients though the Covid-19 pandemic

GPs are on the frontline of the fight against Covid-19. But as well as being in a position where you will be seeing potential Covid-19 patients, the pressure on secondary care means you will be having to manage patients with more serious conditions within primary care.

We have started our ‘Clinical Crises’ series to support you. We have asked specialists and GPwSIs to write simple, short guides on what to you should do when faced with presentations such as very severe eczema in children, diabetic foot, temporal arteritis and grossly abnormal LFTs.

Over the next few weeks, we will be adding more and more guides, which will also be featured in our print issue.

If you have any suggestions about what you would like us to cover, please comment below the line or email

  • Great idea. You could also keep an eye on the comments section and we could add more clinical issues as we come across them.
