Home truths from Chesterfield


I wonder if this question was her own? Did the decisive nature of the question have a political aim? At a time when general practice has massively adapted in a short space of time, managing covid and everything else while the gates to secondary care closed, her comments are harmful and ill thought out. While a minority may not be seeing anyone f2f (not that I am personally aware of anyone doing this) throughout we have seen and assessed ANYONE and everyone, covid or otherwise who needed to see a GP. If they had a stroke or cardiac sounding chest pain, they would have been sent to ED appropriately. Masking her identify like this was unprofessional and I fear she has brought our profession into disrepute.
