Practices required to offer a quarter of appointments online by July


So the worried well who have nothing better to do than surf the net to make yet another appointment will remain worried and well. The ones who really need our attention, as already said, will remain lost. When internet access is not perfect, as is the case in my remote mountain practice, you’re stuffed, as making contact by phone becomes ever more difficult. Recent research showed that 8% of people had never accessed the internet and that was tending to be the old and/or sick. IT may have given us many benefits but leaves us vulnerable in many ways. As I have said in the past ‘Brave or Grave New World’.
