NHS offers £45m for GPs to implement electronic consultations

Comment

for the 8000 practices in England this is about £100 per week for about 4-5 Skype / FaceTime contacts (waste of time and effort as clinically unsafe and will not work outside major cities) or as NHSE spin would have it, it is the equivalent of 450 more GPs straight away from their magic box. Definitely push for the lack of evidence bull - if we open the flood gates of emails and FaceTime and we lock all the doors we'll still be doing 14 hour days and never see a single patient. Go on Maureen, it's brilliant isn't it? Please GPC we want more demand, more contacts, but be sure to roll over very nicely when asked.
