Our latest ALLIANCE Live interview sheds light on the experience of COVID-19 for GPs and the use of instruments in creating calmness.

The impact of COVID-19 on primary care in Scotland

In this ALLIANCE Live podcast, we hear from Dr Carey Lunan, a Deep End GP and the Chair of the Royal College of General Practitioners in Scotland. In conversation with Margaret Mckeith, House of Care Lead at the ALLIANCE,  Carey shares with listeners the general mood amongst GPs of the impact COVID-19 has had on them, their practice teams and the individuals in their community who they support and care for.

Carey also explains the many ways her colleagues and their staff teams have adapted and evolved over the lockdown period as well as looking to the future and what it might holds for General Practitioners in Scotland.

Wellbeing Wednesday – Good Vibrations

This week’s Wellbeing Wednesday is from Good Vibrations (this link will take you away from our website) who share some music played by their Self Management group in Glasgow using a gamelam orchestra, a musical instrument from Indonesia. Following the music, a participant of the group shares an easy relaxation trick that they use to stay calm in any situation.

Coming up

On Thursday 30 July, we’ll be recording our next ALLIANCE Live interview where we’ll be putting forward questions submitted by our members to Angiolina Foster, Chief Executive at NHS 24. A full video of this interview will be released the week commencing 3 August 2020.
