Watch a recording of this event with with GP Gavin Francis, who explores what it means to be a doctor caring for a society in crisis during a pandemic.
In conversation with writer Louise Welsh, Gavin discusses his deeply personal experience of a year caring for patients in rural and urban communities. The two speakers reflect on the ways in which the pandemic and its policy measures have compounded existing social inequalities and health concerns.
From treating patients in care homes to those in communal city stairways, Gavin and Louise reveal what care looks like in different contexts, what can be achieved when we care for each other, and the true cost of the pandemic.
Gavin Francis’s new book ‘Intensive Care’ is out now in hardback.
