Gavin Francis is a GP who works in urban and rural communities. In this account of caring for a society in the midst of a pandemic, he describes these different experiences. By telling this story, he reveals others: of loneliness and hope, illness and recovery, and of what can be achieved when we care for each other.
Gavin will be interviewed by Lady Ann Mawer
