We thank all our general practice, pharmacy and other primary health care professionals and staff for their dedication, resilience and ingenuity in adapting to the many challenges facing the sector, including the pandemic and public anxiety.

Please take care of yourselves. Black Dog Institute explains why self-care planning is critical during the pandemic and beyond. This includes you. So, please make time to care for yourself and to debrief regularly with colleagues.
