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

Comment

The situation is never perfect. Poor funding and staffing etc. The good: Less Covid risk for everyone. Lots of dross are not coming. The photos are better than naked eye diagnosis sometimes. You can really get some close ups without any smell or leading to a dubious GMC complaint. The bad:Very dependent on the assessor's telephone/video skills but it is no different and at times better than doing out of hours.
