001 Lejeunecast: Can the GP rescue ED?


Release Date: 12/18/2018

Welcome to our first podcast!

We are super excited to bring to our patients, colleague doctors, students, parents and affiliated organisations our Lejeunecast! Please subscribe to this and future episodes.

We discuss preventable admissions to the emergency department, whether junior schoolboy rugby is as dangerous as made out, a new platform to reach patients by their general practice, advance care planning and an interview with our practice nurse.
