We are delighted to launch our first podcast, which is a conversation with Dr Sarah Jarvis, who you may know from The One Show and The Jeremy Vine programme.
Dr Jarvis talks about the complexity of lymphoma and the importance of making an accurate diagnosis. In conversation she talks about the role of the GP, not just in referring people who have symptoms of lymphoma, but also for those with a lymphoma diagnosis. She emphasises that your GP surgery may be the best place for flu jabs, health screening and practical advice on such things as benefits and available services.
Although there have been many changes affecting visits to the GP since the COVID-19 outbreak, Dr Jarvis comments that some are proving positive, such as telephone or video consultation, avoiding the need for a visit in-person. Of course, you are still about to be seen by your doctor in person if you need to.
Dr Jarvis emphasises that COVID-19 is not the only illness around, and that people should not hesitate to contact their GP or clinical team if they have any health concerns.
