How technology is changing the GP consultation


It’s Darwinism. You car starts making a terrible rattling sound every time you dash down the motor way at 80? What do you do, take to a mechanic so they can take a good look, or wip out you phone , shoot a video of what you think might be the problem and email it to kwikfit? Feel comfortable with the same approach when you climb aboard that Boeing 747 on the way to your holiday in Ibiza? A video check up is all that’s needed surely? Roll the Darwin dice, make your choice. Anyway we’re just taking about our health, video consults are fine. Everybody knows the only Drs you actually need to see face to face are the real ones in hospital. People don’t get real illness in the community, all the heavy stuff happens in doors. Everybody knows that. Don’t they.
