200 GPs working for Babylon as 40,000 NHS patients apply


GPs gave up with relationship with patients years ago. This is the result. We went part-time, gave up being responsible for out of hours when in effect stopped being GPs for 3/5 of the week. Of course Babylon and GP at hand are disruptive, that the point as it seems it is what 18-40 years olds want from their health service. Most never knew the GP service use used to provide, hands on, take history, examine, and know the family and patient. It's over. I have to work in remote Scotland to practice as a GP in the way I know and prefer.
