We are very sorry but the invitation to the Grand Round on Covid-19 has been withdrawn. Unsurprisingly there has been a huge amount of interest and it is clear that the numbers intending to come will exceed the capacity of the conference rooms in both Tauranga and Whakatane Hospitals. We are posting this as soon as the decision has been made as we are anxious that people do not waste valuable time travelling tomorrow lunchtime. We figured that any frustration caused by this cancellation would be doubled if you had also travelled in to hear it.
We have confirmed that the presentation will be videoed. It is anticipated that we should be able to provide a link to the video by the end of the day on Thursday (5th March).
We have collated all the questions that have been posted hear alongside other feedback that has been received and that is informing a new flow chart which will guide care in general practice. We do not have a time when that will be available but we will post as soon as we have it.
People may have seen that RNZCGPs is running another webinar next Tuesday evening, although I do appreciate that what many people are after is good local information of our response in Bay of Plenty.
We shall continue to post updates as we get them and we will respond to any questions asked as quickly as we can. We shall try to ensure that any future offers regarding communication are not only well intentioned but also realistic and deliverable.
