Judith Harvey: ’76 Days’ tells us candidly about the early days of the pandemic

We know, more or less, how British hospitals are coping with the pandemic. We live it, or we read about it or see it on the BBC documentaries filmed at the Royal Free Hospital.

But what was it like when Covid-19 struck Wuhan? What are our expectations and prejudices about how healthcare is delivered in Chinese hospitals?

He was born in China and took a postgraduate degree in molecular biology from Brandeis University, Massachusetts. He became a film producer and director and now lives in New York. His documentaries deal with issues that are sensitive in Chinese society: a traditional family with a gay son, or the challenges facing Chinese born in the USA who go to live in China.

"After finally deciding to fully engage with NASGP and to join the NASGP BOB Locum Chambers I could now not be happier with every aspect of my professional life. I have incredible flexibility and have a great group of different GP practices to work with – including some who are happy to use me whenever I am available. I really enjoy and get a lot from our monthly meetings and the team makes my admin, invoicing and pension applications as straightforward as possible. I can truly say that I am in the tiny minority of GPs who love their job, have total control of my workload and have minimal stress, working only in great GP practices. I will happily remain with NASGP as long as I want to."

Dr Jonathan Moore, GP, North Oxfordshire
