Caring for Our Patients in the Cost-of-Living Crisis

As the cost-of-living crisis bites, the number of people living in absolute poverty is projected to rise by 3 million in 2023-24. With the effects of deprivation on health being well established, we are likely to see a negative impact on many of our patients’ health and well-being.  Despite this, asking about a patient’s financial situation can seem too challenging to squeeze into already overstretched appointments.  In this clinic, we will consider when to suspect that a patient is struggling with money and will give some simple tips on how to ask about finances. We will also cover what we as GPs can realistically do to help, with some simple tools, brief interventions and resources that can help to take the pressure off us and our patients.  

Join Dr Andrew Ward & Dr Siobhan Becker for this free one-hour session which originally aired on Tuesday 25th April 2023.

You will receive a downloadable certificate for 1 hour of CPD learning for viewing this content.

You will be emailed a direct link to view the webinar shortly after registration and you can also view it via the NB Medical Dashboard.

Brilliant in every way! I like attending live when I can, but the on demand service is great, to fit it in with a busy family life.
