Care Homes, Technology, COVID – eGPLearning Live Update 23 May 2020

Join Andy and Gandhi in the latest eGPLearning Live Update!

In this Saturday morning live discussion, we explore digital primary care and a focus on care home work, social media use by practices and more. 

The NHS England letter to Primary Care on 1/5/20 brought care homes back into spotlight. We consider how PCNs and practices can use technology and think differently to meet the needs of care homes both now and after October 2020 when the new PCN Care Home Service Specifications begin.

  • The Care home DEST
