Rural Services Network members have been sent an article written by the DDA on rural GP services during COVID-19.

The article, which features in the October 2020 Rural Services Partnership Spotlight, is entitled ‘The moment of truth for rural GP services’. A core question posed in the article is: how well enabled are rural GP practices to face the challenges ahead?

Key challenges highlighted include: rural GP recruitment, rural GP IT, and funding for the GP dispensing service.

The article is also hosted on the RSN website.
