Please see bio of Dr Mark Levy and links to other lectures he has delivered.

I have wide experience of lecturing mainly in the field of respiratory medicine in primary care. I do have a special interest in diagnosis of asthma, COPD and allergic conditions. Examples of some of my lectures are available on this site as flash animated files where the lectures can be played and listened to.
Recent lectures include:

  • Lecture for health care providers doing remote consultations with people concerned about their asthma when this has gone out of control: During the COVID-19 pandemic many doctors are conducting remote consultations. Integrated Urgent care doctors and general practitioners need to be able to decide when consulted by someone or a carer of someone with uncontrolled asthma, whether to direct the person to a face to face consultation in primary care or urgently to an A&E Department. This talk accompanied the current (2020) London guidance for 111 calltakers. The talk is intended for health care providers to assist their decision making in their management of patients. The contents are my ideas and opinion, so please use your own judgement, skills and competence in advising your patients. If in any doubt, refer the person to an emergency service.
