General Practice is most likely the first point of contact for people in relation to health matters. General Practice Nurses are on the frontline of Primary Care tackling COVID19. As an RANP in GP I continue to deliver care for non COVID19 acute & minor illness, as a result of the crisis this is now often via telemedicine with remote triage & assessment, or in person if necessary. Carry out COVID19 risk assessment, if appropriate organise screening. Provide clarity, reinforce advice specifically about COVID19 concerns. Remotely monitor & provide wellness checks for patients with chronic conditions helping them stay well and avoid hospital admission. Prioritise Immunisations, Infant & Adult preventing further epidemics of infectious disease & reducing the burden of illness such as Influenza and Pneumonia . #TeamGP
