The COVID-19 outbreak is arguably one of the greatest public health challenges of our time – not least for general practice, where over one million patients are already treated every day.

The College is closely monitoring the situation and developing practical resources and support for GPs and their teams. They have launched specific guidance [PDF] for general practice, including out-of-hours. This will be updated as the situation develops but things are extremely fast-moving so please make sure you are using the latest version.

They hope you will find this page and its resources useful in your day to day work and for keeping yourselves, your families and your patients as safe as you possibly can be over the coming difficult weeks and months.
