Gavin Francis ~ Intensive Care: A GP, a Community & COVID-19

14 October, 6:00 pm-7:00 pm
Zoom Webinar

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

‘Well written, often entertaining and occasionally deeply moving; an unmissable account of a year we will all try too hard to forget.’ The Times

‘Inspiring. I can’t recommend it too strongly. You will learn a lot from it, and you will find much more that is encouraging.’ Allan Massie, Scotsman
