SGPET COVID 19 Weekly Update, Mon 30 March 2020

Date sent: Tuesday 31 March 2020

NEWS/UPDATE BOARD -  This and past updates can be found here

As SGPET face to face education events remain postponed we are organising some remote learning tutorials, webinars and small group events around key topics that you will be able to view and access on this SGPET course page . Additions will be made to the list when available and be highlighted in this weekly SGPET Covid19 Update.

Promised in last week’s update the first of these is video recording of a tutorial about Telephone Triage which you can see via a YouTube link. A Rapid Induction Into Telephone Triage with Dr Andy Eaton is a half hour tutorial full of practical advice insights, tips and models that will help any primary care clinician now having to do telephone triage and consultation.

This is the first of a series of recorded tutorials, and follow up live case discussion webinars about telephone triage from Somerset GP Andy Eaton and Bristol GP Alison Hutchings. Both are GP Training Programme Directors and OOH Fellows and what they have to say comes straight from the coal-face.

All practices will have now received a letter from Dr Charlie Davis, Consultant in Palliative Medicine, on behalf of the Somerset COVID end of life group. The document “Care at Home in Somerset: Our joint approach to keeping people where they are best supported” is an important read. We are working with the COVID-19 EoL Group to provide you with a number of helpful video tutorials and these will start to be posted on the SGPET site within the next week.

Professional Wellbeing - Looking after self and others

Preserving and protecting the health, safety and wellbeing of staff is critical for all general practices as we respond to the COVID-19 outbreak. Looking at how others are doing this across the NHS can be helpful to general practice employers and managers and there are several good ideas and resources on the NHS Employers website here.

Through the same website all NHS staff, including everyone in general practice can now access a number of wellbeing apps for free. Additional self-help apps and support will be available over the next few weeks. To see how to access these apps, please visit the NHS Employers website 

We have had a lot of positive feedback about last week’s article about self-care from Andrew Tresidder and we are sure this week’s will be just as helpful.
