How technology is changing the GP consultation

Comment

As a human I would like to be treated by one. AI may be an advancement in computerised technologies and may well work out quicker a diagnosis and therefore what CAN be done. with already technologically assisted long levity and therefore resultant multi-morbidity the bigger problems are increasingly what SHOULD be done. unless you want microchips to make this sort of decision then I think we still need hands on Humans under the guise of well trained, experienced Doctors not remote or virtual technicians. the technological solution is a fallacy. it is however an entrepreneurial's wet dream. unfortunately it has all the hallmarks of coming to a sticky end... [ every pun intended]
