Jul 8th, 2020 by primarycareknowledgeboost
Lisa and Sara bring back Dr Joanna Bircher and Dr Viren Mehta for this last episode in the COVID-19 series to reflect on all of the positives that have come from the outbreak in general practice, the personal and professional learning that they have had and some focus on staff wellbeing with a few simple ideas on how to support each other.
Thank you to Practice Managers Sara Mayer at Archwood Medical Practice and Michelle Davenport at Heaton Mersey Medical Practice for sharing their insights too.
