    There are concerns over how GPs will manage Covid-patients in the near future

    There are concerns over how GPs will manage Covid-patients in the near future


    The Government's unveiled a plan, which would see those infected isolating at home instead of in quarantine.

    Health Minister Andrew Little says the plan will be rolled out when vaccination rates are deemed appropriate for it to go ahead.

    The Royal New Zealand College of GPs President, Samantha Murton, says it raises all sorts of questions.

    She says it isn't clear how GPs will manage Covid-patients, whether it's monitoring them remotely or visiting them at home.
