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

Finally! An opportunity to take matters into our own hands rather than just watch as our profession is ground into the dust.

The model as I understand it just sweats existing assets that belong to the practice. And as GP's, we get a chance to supplement our gradually declining income. I spoke to my insurance provider, stressing that I would potentially be seeing people without their notes, and they were relaxed - no different to a home visit for example. Difference in premium was negligible. Time for a quick chat with the partner methinks....
