Agree social prescribing should be 'why don't you either do it yourself or alternatively go to the citizens advice bureau?'
Thank you Nick - very interesting. The real phenomenon of 'central sensitisation' needs more widespread understanding when linked to chronic pain
Agree none of these activities needs to be "prescribed" - it is just promoting more dependence in the population on HCPs rather than promoting proper self care
Dear David - thank you for your great writing, honesty and integrity
Brilliant!! the paradox with AI is that is increases anxiety AND workload in one fell swoop and "common sense" goes by the wayside...
No not really..
Agree they will have to be on APMS contracts - simply no do-able. The bubble will burst within 3 years
If the nomadic boat dweller can go to a hospital clinic , surely she is able to attend a normal GP appointment..
No way - 5yrs too long, stick to 3 please
Thanks Charlotte - brilliant and totally agree
Again - brilliant!!
Yes I'll think you find Babylon marked their own exam paper as it were..
Totally agree Jaime - the likelihood is and evidence is beginning to show that there is a paradox with AI: in that is actually increases patient demand and anxiety as the algorithms cannot capture information that human consciousness can. No robot will ever be substitute for human consciousness in a consultation. True self care is patient empowerment and education and not dependence on AI and health apps. Thank you for your comments.
Yes - brilliant and true
yes - total rubbish
Agree money spent on management consultants and non patient facing bureaucrats is a disgrace
Oh please - this digital obsession is ...yawn
It was a meta- policy made up on the hoof anyway , so not much to scrap
