All 4 UK Chief Medical Officers have signed a letter in support of doctors during Covid-19. It says that if the disease becomes an established significant epidemic in the UK, NHS and HSC services in primary and secondary care and public health across all four nations will be put under extreme pressure. This pressure will inevitably be exacerbated by staff shortages due to sickness or caring responsibilities. It will be a challenge for all doctors.

The letter in full can be found below along with guidance on medical education and training.
