Lack of evidence for GP video consultations, finds study


I’m glad this has been formally recognised in a study. The findings are blindingly obvious. Anyone who works for these cowboys needs to be aware they are responsible for the care they are providing and be willing to accept the personal and wider societal risk they are taking on. It won’t be long before the insurance industry cottons on to the inherent risks of this model of care. I won’t be crying any tears for nieve on line ‘Drs’ who find themselves on the wrong end of a negligence claim. You take the money, you live with the consequences. It often takes a few years before they come out of the woodwork, but don’t delude yourself - cases will be forthcoming and this studies like this will be used as evidence against you.
