Babylon suffers continued block on plans to expand GP at Hand to Birmingham

Comment

Obviously Babylon cannot deliver a complete GP service through telephones or video links from 100 miles away. They will have additional clinicians locally-based to patients. However, in my experience, at least 60% of primary (and probably secondary) healthcare can be delivered virtually from anywhere in the world, subject to the necessary connections and language abilities. It is just about both patients and clinicians getting used to this form of healthcare delivery. It is already taking place all over the world and being increasingly used. Babylon already deliver virtual healthcare to African countries.
