The real problem with Babylon


Babylon improves accessibility by bringing the clinicians to your smartphone. One of the technical limitations of this is not having a surgery around the corner when you need a face to face appointment. So, it make sense to limit certain type of patients! Maybe Babylon Health is not for the ageing 'baby boomers' but it's the future of healthcare for the tech savvy, on the move 'millennials'. It is just £5 a month if you want to use Babylon service privately. If I get a chance I would work for Babylon, as I will have control over the number of patient encounters per day! I am very tired of 12 hour days and the bitching/politics/ parasitic behaviour of the GP partners. In my book general practice is privatised as each surgery is a private business! LOL
