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


Alberto @3.47 I am not sure that you are completely correct. Babylon pays the indemnity costs of GPs working for them. So this is analogous to a NHS hospital Doctor being covered for work at an NHS hospital. I am not sure regarding the Health Ombudsman and the GMC. There is undoubtedly a risk when one cannot physically examine a patient, but in my experience of performing telephone consultations over many years I have never had a complaint related to a telephone consultation. Of course like everybody else I have had other complaints.
