Patients to access GP video consultations in Boots pharmacy stores


This is why I am planning to leave GP and retrain in a speciality. Proper GPing is great, but all this does is scream "GP's are second rate doctors who are just barriers to care". Can you Skype consultants from Boots? No, they still have some street cred. I'm not prepared to spend my life looking at patients through a fu$^&%g screen. What does this say about the value of our exam skills, or the way we change body language to reassure a patient, or how an exam can be a therapy rather than just to look for clinical signs? Total BS
