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

Comment

as a GP with special interest in dermatology it has been an eye opener to see how limited teledermatology really is. I find it far quicker and safer to eyeball the patient often in our outside courtyard in the sunlight. They feel they have been properly seen and its altogether more satisfactory. nevertheless we are well pleased with telephone triage- its so efficient that the poor locums are now out of work. Suddenly there is no recruitement crisis.
