    • Science

In this series of two podcasts, Dr Dirk Pilat, the medical director for professional development of the RCGP, discusses the resurgence of measles in the United Kingdom. In the first part, Dr Michael Mulholland, the honorary secretary of the RCGP, reminds us of the severity of the disease, the efficacy of the MMR vaccine and how to prepare for a potential increase of cases in the community. In the second part, Dr Tehseen Khan, a GP in North East London, the Population Health & Health Inequalities Lead at North East London ICS and a Clinical Advisor for NHS England, shares his experiences on how to increase immunisation coverage within communities where coverage has traditionally been below average and how to address lack of vaccine confidence in the consultation.
