How we freed up 10 hours of clinical time by re-organising our consulting rooms


Dear Harry Longman, I found your statement interesting.Could you clarify to all us interested doctors what the''different way of thinking'' is? How exactly is a GP practice to modify its processes to ''demand led''when there is no funding to increase resources to provide service?and unlike toyota/Nissan we cant lay off and hire at will?Could you also explain just how does remote consulting free up Dr time and availability?How exactly does SKYPE allow me to see more patients?How does it reduce the demand?How does it increase ability to do ''more''?The main difference Harry, between engineering and Medicine is that in Engineering you put the machine off to make it safe...we cant do that.
