By Dr Mitchell a ‘DeepEnd’ GP and Yorkshire Cancer Research Senior Research Fellow in Sheffield

Primary healthcare teams (general practice and community nursing services) within the UK have had a critical role in the provision of community palliative and end-of-life care during the COVID-19 pandemic, alongside specialist palliative care services. The role and response of primary care in the delivery of end-of-life care during pandemics has received little attention in previous research, policy, or practice guidance.

This seminar will provide insights from research carried out during COVID-19 into the experiences of UK primary care professionals. Key messages from the research are relevant to the future delivery of community palliative and end-of-life care in the UK and beyond.
