Hundred-year-old practice latest victim in practice closure epidemic


Sad loss, and probably the number of people suffering as a result will not tell the real tale of how remote and vulnerable they are without this care. Expect 'video consultation' services to be the norm from some remote commercial provider, and a greater strain on OoHs when a GP has to get in a car to go to them when their 'new practice' fails to pitch up. Car crash? More like suffocation.
