Embracing a new way of working
Embracing a new way of working

I have been working as a GP partner in Thetford for the last 4 years. It has been a fairly challenging time for primary care throughout this pandemic, as we have had to adapt and reorganise almost everything we do. We are now working full steam ahead on managing conditions in the community which may have previously required hospital visits, as well as the needs of those patients with coronavirus who are well enough to remain out of hospital or during their recovery after discharge.

We've had to embrace new technologies rapidly and now conduct most consultations by phone, email or even by video. All the time we have to be aware of the potential transmission risks and the need to keep patients, staff ourselves and our families safe. It's a new way of working for a very unique circumstance.
