'Uber-style' private GP appointment service primed for national rollout

Comment

1. Ideally there would be no private medicine it is queue jumping and it doesn't exist in Alberta Canada where I work for that reason. Doctors are paid better here of course and no beurocrasy. 2. If youre going to do it this system seems a pain in the arse. The odd patient for 40 quid. surely youwould want at least 10 together to make it worth while or charge more. 3. who cares about having all their notes for most things. As said for long term conditions might need it. Again here in Canada people go to random clinics a lot not just their own doc if they even have one and it works ok. This service is more for urtis m.skel, STIs, new symptoms and worried well and if not reassured may well be advised to keep the appointment with their own GP which was 2 weeks away. so what?
