How GPs have used the independent model to adapt in the pandemic


Patients are being processed much more quickly. It feels great not to have a queue outside each morning, and to have a nice empty waiting room. Clinical care though is compromised. Antibiotics are dished out on a whim. Pathologies are missed more often. There will be a slide back to face to face consultations over the next few months. The pandemic has accelerated the changes that were inevitable anyway. We just need to find the right balance.
