Patients to access GP video consultations in Boots pharmacy stores

Comment

when GP dies and there are no more doctors the videos will be then with nurses, paramedics, PAs, then it will be HCA based and then with a computer programme. This is the way medicine is heading for the masses. Actual GPs will become private practitioners and only those who can afford it will receive traditional 1 to 1 consultations and continuity of care. GPs will charge the going rate for such professional high class work at around £300 an hour plus at current rates. This is what will happen. As GPs do not strike or protest, as well the government knows, this will be the outcome. By doing nothing as GPs and I include the RCGP and BMA in this, we have created this system. It wont be fair or have equal access. Welcome to the IT world of medicine. The doctor will not see you now.
