How technology is changing the GP consultation


6 years ago seems to be an Ocean of time nowadays. In fact, it was just then that Dr Singh, GP and Dr Leder, Professor of Philosophy, were chanting the benefits of the human "touch in the (medical) consultation". I am concerned that financial interests, conflict of interests, money cutting exercises, and political benefits pressures may all work in a direction that may be "innovative", but not beneficial to the patient and particularly those more in need. I also subscribe most of the comments and I remain puzzled when hearing that physical examination is not a must.
