​GPs go forth: Has the Government's strategy put GPs at risk?


GPs are seeing very few patients face to face. Our need for PPE is secondary to that of the care home staff spending all day in contact with COVID-19 positive patients. I'm slightly aghast watching GP colleagues on the news wearing full HAZMAT suits to examine patients. I feel I'm more at risk in Tescos than sitting in surgery phoning patients.
