BJGP Interviews

24-10-2023 • 15 mins

In this episode, we’re doing something a bit different. Last week, the BJGP team attended the annual Royal College of GPs conference up in Glasgow, and presented a workshop looking at continuity of care. In this podcast, we’re going to pull together some of what we spoke about at that workshop, which highlighted some of the exceptional research that has been published in the BJGP on continuity, and also present a piece by Sir Denis Pereria Gray who also contributed to the workshop and spoke about how to put continuity into practice.
