Friday Jan 20, 2023

Doctors Sara and Lisa talk to GP Dr David Bartlett who works with the Neuroendocrine Cancer UK charity and GP Dr Will Evans who is a researcher specialising in rare diseases. We wanted to discuss how they  approach finding rare diseases in General Practice whilst balancing this with the risk of over investigating. We start with definitions and classifications before discussing where neuroendocrine cancers fit into this landscape. Their pearls of wisdom could help us keep our antenae up, referrals helpful and resources for clinicians and patients well stocked.

Doctors Sara and Lisa talk to Dietician Charlotte Cockman about managing weight for patients who are overweight or obese in General Practice. This includes a discussion around the definitions of overweight and obesity, risk factors, and what terms are less stigmatising when discussing weight with patients. Charlotte talks to us about her approach to weight, eating and health, and how this approach can encourage long term behavioural changes that focus on health and nutrition rather than weight. We discuss management options including what tier two and three NHS services do, as well as where some medications and surgery fit into this picture.
