Christine will follow current Chair Michael Draper to lead Council.
We have taken urgent action to respond to coronavirus, releasing staff with clinical roles to devote more time to treating patients, providing research scientists to contribute to the laboratory-based diagnostic effort and re-purposing our research laboratories to support the expansion of NHS pathology services. We are also contributing to national and local discussions about the ethical dimensions of policy and clinical practice in relation to Covid-19.
Extending our impact to the care of patients globally, nearly 20,000 people from over 150 countries are taking our new online course, 'Managing Covid-19 in General Practice', learning about the epidemiology, clinical symptoms and signs of Covid-19, as well as protocols to help them in their work managing the disease.
Our expanding portfolio of research projects relating to Covid-19 includes:
work on a rapid antibody test designed to tell if people have coronavirus or not
research to understand the biology of the disease
national and international trials for potential treatments.
