GPs should do 'all' consultations remotely going forward, says health secretary


‘’ ‘So from now on, all consultations should be teleconsultations unless there’s a compelling clinical reason not to.’ This will ‘free up clinicians to concentrate on what really matters’, he added. He added that while there ‘always’ has to be an alternative system for people who can’t log on, we ‘shouldn’t patronise older people by saying they don’t do tech’. ‘’ You see , unless my English is that poor to understand this , the Health Secretary has serious problem in expressing in simple words what he meant to say ? Otherwise, this is old habit hard to rid again , One Size Fits All. OMG , mo wonder we are in this predicament under such leadership .
