Massive change for GP surgeries highlighted in our latest Podcast

The latest Podcast from Staffordshire and Stoke-on-Trent CCGs is launched today, looking at the massive changes that Coronavirus has brought about for our GP practices.

Richard Caddy talks to Dr Lorna Clarson about:

  • The transformation of GP practices in a pandemic
  • The race to prepare for Coronavirus
  • Adapting to remote consultations
  • How patients react to the huge change
  • Why some patients must come to surgery while most stay away
  • How GPs work from home
  • The impact on care homes
  • What will become the new normal when the virus goes

And there’s a thank you to plumbers.
