General Practice after Covid-19 – what have our colleagues said?

David Misselbrook is Deputy Editor of the BJGP.

In March BJGP Life put out a call for articles on the theme of “General Practice after Covid-19″, and during April we published them.

The articles have been a fascinating read. It is often said that organising GPs is like herding cats – our independence has always been our strength, and sure enough we have received some very mixed messages. These articles advocate many different paths, some mutually contradictory.

But it is best if you read them and make up your own mind. Here are links to all of the articles, in order of publication:

Julia Darko: POST-PANDEMIC PLANNING: HOW SHOULD GENERAL PRACTICE CHANGE?

Peter Aird: MEDICINE IN THE TIME OF CORONAVIRUS

Richard Armitage: GENERAL PRACTICE AFTER COVID-19: A GREATER ROLE FOR REMOTE PATIENT MONITORING

Richard Churchill: YOUNG PEOPLE AND GENERAL PRACTICE IN A POST-COVID WORLD: FORGOTTEN AGAIN?

Judith Dawson: HONESTY: A WISH FOR THE POST COVID ERA

Vasumathy Sivarajasingam: GENERAL PRACTICE AFTER COVID-19 – LESSONS LEARNED

David Zigmond: WHAT DO WE WANT OF DOCTORS BESIDE BIOMEDICAL SCIENCE?

Asif Yaseen: THE CHANGES WE LEARNED TO LOVE IN THE TIME OF COVID

Pamela Martin: GENERAL PRACTICE AFTER COVID – A FUTURE CONVERSATION

Ashley Liston: IS THERE A ROLE FOR RETIRED GPS IN THE POST-COVID ERA?

Joanne Reeve: SCIENTIFIC REASONS TO QUESTION THE ROLE OF TELECONSULTATIONS IN EXPERT GENERALIST PRACTICE

Peter Toon: TOWARDS AN INTERPRETIVE PATIENT-CENTRED PRACTICE

Please feel free to leave comments – the comment box is at the very bottom of each article page, or leave general comments at the bottom of this page. We will be making a special feature of some of these articles in the June BJGP.
