The COVID pandemic caused an upheaval to the endoscopy services for suspected upper and lower gastrointestinal malignancies. To talk through the changes in how referrals are managed and what that means for general practice and patients, Dr Lisa Adams and Dr Sara MacDermott are joined by GPwSI in Gastroenterology Dr Sophie Nelson and Consultant Gastroenterologist Dr Alistair Makin.
The next episode in the series talking about additional roles in primary care is all about paramedics in general practice. Dr Lisa Adams and Dr Sara MacDermott speak to Scott Murray, who has been working as a paramedic within primary care for some time now, having transitioned through acute care and urgent care. He talks them through his journey, why he chose to move to primary care and some tips for both paramedics and the general practice team about how to make that transition.
