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


There are clearly issues where GP's will find time available to see private patients when they would not stay longer to see the NHS they are contracted to see. I sense there is a fear that GP's realise that in time this Uber service will actually send the patient to the most appropriate clinician relevant to their symptoms and that means cutting out the very expensive middle man and getting the patient a better service and ultimately saying the NHS abortive fees spent on very expensive referrers. Bring it on.
