What happens when Deep End goes Rural?!

Many readers will be familiar with the Deep End project, originating in Glasgow but which has spread far and wide in describing the work of GPs working in areas of urban deprivation.  The original project brought together 100 general practices serving the most socio-economically deprived populations in Scotland.  The project team has carried out a fantastic amount of work to highlight the impact of inequalities on prevalence of medical conditions and access to healthcare.

So what happens when a Deep End GP (or a GP and GP trainee, to be precise!) travel out for some time in a remote island practice?  Dr Maria Duffy and Dr Elizabeth Dryden did exactly that, when they travelled to Benbecula to spend a week with rural GP Dr Kate Dawson… and produced this short video of their experience…

We look forward to the sequel!
