Coronavirus disease 2019 covid-19 : a guide for UK GPs

The UK recorded its first confirmed case of acute respiratory infection due to coronavirus disease 2019 (covid-19) on 31 January 2020 and responded by quarantining at-risk individuals to contain the spread of infection. Executive agencies Public Health England (PHE)1 and Health Protection Scotland (HPS) have since published guidance to healthcare providers on managing patients suspected to have the disease.

Guidance for the public and health professionals varies internationally, depending partly on risk levels and healthcare systems, and is being regularly updated.

This article offers a practical guide for GPs and others working in UK primary care on when to suspect covid-19 and how to respond. It is based on current UK guidance at the time of publication. We recommend readers consult the latest guidance
