Doctors Sara and Lisa talk to talk to Dr Mary Cheshire who is the GP lead on the NHS England Fellowships for Greater Manchester GPs. As she explains, this is a fairly informal fellowship done over 2 years offering different types of courses and support that essentially consists of a paid CPD session a week and a range of CPD events to facilitate this. The course runs a qualification in coaching people can sign up for and are offered Mentors. Completing a quality improvement project is encouraged, whether that is small or large and there are opportunities for support for this along the way. At the moment this is available for newly qualified GPs and those up to 2 years after CCT who are in Salaried or Partnership posts. 
There are other types of Fellowships - we mention the Health Education England GP Fellowships and GP Nurses Fellowships briefly, see details below.

Long COVID - An Update

Wednesday Apr 12, 2023

Wednesday Apr 12, 2023

Doctors Sara and Lisa talk to talk to GP and Professor of General Practice Research Dr Carolyn Chew-Graham about the current landscape of Long COVID three years on. She spoke to us on the topic back in August 2021, but what we know and some of the treatments have moved on from then. In this talk we discuss why the patient-preferred term is Long COVID rather than Post COVID Syndrome, symptoms, how many people are living with the condition in the UK to date and some of the types of management and help that are available.

Doctors Sara and Lisa talk to GP Dr Adam Cliffe about how he and his practice went about changing the model by which patients access the practice. It is so far working very well for both staff and patients. It’s an interesting talk about change management and one example of how a difficult situation was changed for the better.

Doctors Sara and Lisa talk to Dr Aseem Mishra, Academic GP trainee involved in helping produce the Guidelines for the Greater Manchester Lipid Pathway. Greater Manchester has very high levels of Major Adverse Cardiovascular Events (MACEs). The guidelines for how to treat hyperlipidaemia and what we’re aiming for have changed. Dr Mishra helps talk through these changes.  Towards the end of the episode, we discuss injectable treatments for secondary prevention including Inclisiran. The resource links are extensive, we hope you find the discussion and the links as useful as we do.

Doctors Sara and Lisa talk to ENT Consultant Ms Sadie Khwaja about common throat symptoms we encounter in General Practice and get her take on how to assess and manage these. We cover Red Flag symptoms for the neck in detail as well as looking at three cases we commonly encounter; pain on swallowing, globus symptoms and hoarseness. We discuss a useful approach for assessing causes of throat problems, consider the triad of swallowing, breathing and voice difficulties and the importance of feeling for neck lumps amongst other interesting pearls of wisdom.

Doctors Lisa and Sara talk to Dr Sarah Taylor about the changes being made to how Primary Care Clinicians refer patients for Suspected Lower Gastrointestinal Cancers. These changes are discussed in the context of referring in the Greater Manchester area, but you can view the  joint guideline from the Association of Coloproctology of Great Britain and Ireland (ACPGBI) and the British Society of Gastroenterology below. This will change the way we manage patients. To help, we go through some potential cases. Good tips for how to mitigate potential risks with the changes included. We hope you find this useful.

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.

Doctors Sara and Lisa speak with Christopher Lewis, Operations Learning and Development Manager for Greater Manchester Training Hub. His non-pretentious, passionate approach to coaching and mentoring was infectious. We hope you get a flavour of how coaching and mentoring might help in General Practice. The episode was designed with GP fellows in mind but anyone working in Primary Care may benefit.
