The Channel 4 series, It’s a Sin, aired on British television for the first time in January 2021. Here, Dr Olwen Williams, RCP vice president for Wales and a consultant in sexual health and HIV medicine, discusses medical advances over the last 40 years and the stigma that remains.
In March 2020, Dr Kate Edwards, a former RCP chief registrar, found herself in the eye of the COVID-19 storm. As the RCP publishes its updated manifesto calls ahead of the 2021 Senedd election in Wales, she reflects on how she and colleagues rose to the challenge during the pandemic.
As we approach the first anniversary of lockdown, the Royal College of Physicians (RCP) has launched Recover, rebuild, renew, which looks at the effect of the pandemic on the medical workforce in Wales.
The ninth survey of RCP fellows and members during the COVID-19 pandemic shows that while morale appears to have slightly improved, physicians who have worked tirelessly throughout the pandemic are now in urgent need of rest and recuperation.
