We have always managed to get a podcast up on a Friday since we started, so here the trend continues.  But rather than talk medicine, today we look at some ways people are helping improve peoples isolation through the medium of the internet.

If you have heart warming, funny or uplifting stories from Urgent Care that come out of this current situation, please let us know at podcast@rnzcuc.org.nz

 

Stay well, and look after each other
