In this final podcast for the summer Dr Neal Tucker reflects on the latest news and research in the world of general practice from the past two weeks.

As COVID cases start to rise again we look at the latest research on the transmission of COVID via schools and why we all need a change in mindset about working when ill. We consider the role of GPs in taking away a patient's car keys and giving them a bike. And we look at vaccines with positive news on COVID immunisation and the difficulties of delivering 30 million flu immunisations in the Autumn while donning and doffing PPE.

Back in September, have a good summer everyone!
