  • Catriona Morton Health inequalities in Scotland: a GP view July 2020
    This account, from a frontline GP, reflects on the experience of a professional lifetime in practices serving socio-economically deprived populations. It refers to the evidence base, is a call to action, and offers pragmatic solutions and recommendations for resource distribution. The paper is rooted in the current Scottish General Practice architecture, unapologetically using that, and Edinburgh-based approaches, as case studies. It is a document of its place and time: it will achieve its purpose if colleagues feel free to use it as a resource to change things for the better, in the service of our patients.
