In this summer holidays episode of the Hot Topics Podcast, Neal Tucker looks at the latest research for the primary care community.

Firstly, three treatments for covid-19 in community-managed patients - do they work?

Next rotator cuff injury - can progressive exercise beat usual care and is there ANY role for steroid injections?

Finally, FIT testing for suspected colorectal cancer - do we now have the data to replace colonoscopy?

And as you’re here you probably like podcasts, so have a listen to Tamsin Ellis on the BBC talking about general practice and the environment. Link below.
