Many countries are facing a new phase of the pandemic where COVID-19 vaccine roll-out and uptake takes centre stage. Vaccine hesitancy poses a real challenge in pursuit of this goal. Indeed, the World Health Organization (WHO) listed vaccine hesitancy as one of the top 10 threats to global health.1 The need to understand and support uptake of COVID-19 vaccinations is now imperative. To achieve herd immunity, the virus transmission rate, R, and the performance of the vaccine must be taken into ac...
Background: Cervical cancer disproportionately affects women aged 65 years and older, especially those with inadequate previous screening.

As of 2 August 2021, in England there have been over 5.9 million cases of acute COVID-19 infection, and over 130 000 deaths.1 The Office for National Statistics (ONS) estimate that 962 000 people in England are experiencing long COVID symptoms at least 4 weeks post-infection, with almost a fifth reporting ‘a lot’ of day-to-day limitation2 — although there is uncertainty about the accuracy of these estimates.3 In addition to the health burden, there is potential for significant socioeconomic harm...
Publication of the National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE) guideline for assessment of chronic pain and management of chronic primary pain (NG193) was a watershed moment.1 The guideline received a polarised response from both people with chronic pain and clinicians. Many reports focused on, and often misinterpreted, the pharmacological recommendations in the guideline. However, we suggest that the guideline sends a hopeful message, initiating a step change in how we conceptualis...

Primary Care Network-based Population Health Management interventions have the potential to augment existing services. Pharmacist-led interventions to improve chronic disease medication adherence have been shown to be effective.2–4 A study of the New Medicine Service offered by community pharmacies in England show...
David Misselbrook New diseases don’t come along that often. As I write, almost 5 million people have died of COVID-19 worldwide.1 How fortunate we are in the West to be relatively wealthy, well, and fully jabbed. Yet even in the UK it feels as if normal life has stopped for the last 18 months, with bereavement, grief, economic loss, mental health problems, and now ongoing illness and disability. And the knock-on effect on treatment of the old diseases, especially cancer. And so to long COVID — n...

Post-COVID-19 syndrome, often called ‘long COVID’ refers to signs and/or symptoms that develop following COVID-19 infection, which continue for more than 12 weeks and are not explained by an alternative diagnosis.1 Long COVID presents with clusters of symptoms, often overlapping, can affect any system in the body, and fluctuate in time and severity. Symptoms of long COVID that commonly impact on function and may impede return to work (including travel to and from work) include fatigue, shortness...
