By Dr Alex
A&E doctor, Alex George, is back with a fourth series of the podcast after a very intense few months.
He's been treating Covid-19 patients at Lewisham Hospital in London and sharing his experiences with the nation in his role as a TV medic.
Joining him in this first episode is his A&E colleague, Emergency Medicine Consultant, Dr Anna Colclough. They compare notes on delivering care through a global pandemic and discuss how quickly their department adapted in the most extraordinary circumstances.
