Campus to Clinic Community Visits

The first years and second years go out this year in groups of four to Primary Care over 8 mornings as part of the Campus to Clinic part of the curriculum. Whilst they are at Primary Care we ask them to find a local voluntary group (ideally close to their practice) to visit so they can learn about local healthcare networks, as well as thinking holistically about healthcare. The visits may also help to build links between the practices and voluntary groups which is what the third sector is always asking for. Some of the student brief reports on their community visits are starting to come in and I am always amazed at the diversity of the visits that the students manage to carry out. I offer some brief feedback on these to the students and they are usually a pleasure to read. SO WHAT'S IN THE BMJ THIS WEEK? . MPs urge government to stop "bickering" with NHS leaders and solve funding crisis. . Four in 10 European doctors may leave UK after Brexit vote, BMA survey finds. . Support swells across UK in day of action for migrant workers. . Politicians will be "colluding" in unsafe care if they block NHS plans, says King's Fund chief. .
