Ayrshire and Arran GPs

All GPs in the Ayrshire and Arran region deserve recognition due to the ‘commitment, dedication and determination to deliver quality care in hours and out of hours to both Covid 19 and non-Covid 19 presentations’ in recent months, says the LMC’s medical secretary Dr Chris Black. Individual GPs helped design the Covid assessment centres and triage hubs, others took on far more hours in existing or new services, some shielding GPs took on the responsibility of remote triage, a practice supported another by seeing patients during a local outbreak – the list goes on according to Dr Black. ‘None of these heroes deserve praise more than another. We said at the start we were in this together and we should be recognised as one.’
