Babylon's GP at Hand app signs up new patient 'every two minutes'

Comment

I really think NHSE and CCGs don't know how to deal with this. A new technology and without doubt cherry picking, leaving the complex multimorbidity to the carbon based GPs on the ground. AND they are not funded for it. Current funding is based on a mix of patients the low users subsidising the high users. Once there are less low users in the mix the funding for the high end is non viable. This is destabilising and it has come at precisely the time when GP is already underfunded and unstable. What is needed now, to make the point, is one of the practices in the middle of this maelstrom to go belly up.
