Two pieces of guidance have been developed and circulated today (23 March 2020) which the BMA have agreed with RCGP and NHSEI. This is for clinicians working in general practice in the UK, and can be found here:
They should be read alongside guidance from the BMA on workload prioritisation dated 19 March 20. During the development of this guidance consideration was given to work that is essential to maintain public health and that which is unlikely to cause harm if delayed for approximately a short number of months.
