Revealed: How online GP company Babylon can sign up millions of patients

Comment

This is utterly scandalous, the fact that is supported by NHSE speaks volumes. The worried well can have a cosy Skpe chat with a clinician. Meanwhile those that are actually in need of medical care, will of course be best dealt with elsewhere. As with OOH, there be many patients diverted to emergency departments, because you really cannot assess illness without knowing vital signs. Truthfully you would be as well of with Dr google or asking a mate.
