Patients to access GP video consultations in Boots pharmacy stores

Comment

You see that coming anyway . If pharmacy is to sell more high dose statin , the ‘legitimacy’ can be supported by these video consultations inside the pharmacy. Let them ! As I wrote , this morning , the government and its health secretary needs to make a decision who needs who more in this equation. If they decide that we and hence , continuity of care , are not that vital and essential. Fine , we are not there to pick up pieces and they will have to bear the political consequences. While more and more experienced GP colleagues will walk , we are already sleepwalking into scorched earth politics ( if you know what I mean) . If the government wants to throw itself off the cliff ( sounds familiar, doesn’t it? Oh , the Brexit story ) , let it f***ing do it .🤨🤪
