The BMA advice line has seen, not unsurprisingly, a huge increase in calls seeking advice about all sorts of COVID-related enquiries over the last nine months.

Many of the enquiries we have received have been from sessional GP members in relation to work pattern changes during COVID, or how to manage needing to isolate as a sessional GP.

We have also sought to help sessional GPs with a whole range of more diverse issues such as personal protective equipment enquiries, childcare effects on ability to work and risk assessments. 

Members can also see much of their collated advice here.

Over the coming months our member relations team will be writing a blog for the newsletter with answers to the most frequent questions from sessional GPs that month which we hope will be useful for colleagues who may be experiencing similar problems.
