Intensive Care with Dr Gavin Francis

Join us at this live Q&A with GP Gavin Francis, who will explore the experiences of treating patients during the coronavirus pandemic, in both urban and rural communities.

In conversation with Dr Jivitesh Vashisht (IASH, Edinburgh), Gavin will discuss his experiences in Edinburgh and the islands of Orkney. When the pandemic arrived in our society he saw how it affected every walk of life: the anxious teenager, the isolated care home resident, the struggling furloughed worker and homeless ex-prisoner, all united by their vulnerability in the face of a global disaster. And he saw how the true cost of the virus was measured not just in infections, or deaths, or ITU beds, but in the consequences of the measures taken against it.
