What role did primary care and general practice play in the different phases of Covid- 19 epidemic? What can we learn from the emergency to innovate the health system and the role of primary care in our country? The article addresses these questions by presenting the happenings that directly involved primary care and general practitioners (especially on topics concerning USCA, personal safety and protection, and new care models) and by making some considerations on the immediate future. The role of general practice is discussed from a double perspective, where the epidemic situation coexists with the ordinary care management, especially of chronic patients. The management of the pandemic forces us to reflect on i) the coordination of territorial actors, ii) the management of territorial services network operations, iii) the consequences of challenging the traditional care model, and iv) the hypothesis of a new mix of person-centred services and community centred-services.

Keywords: Primary care, general practitioner, chronic diseases, territorial care, Covid-19, eHealth.
