How might general practice look in 2050?


I predict that advances in artificial intelligence and robotics will radically change medicine in 50yrs. We will rely on AI for improved diagnosis and some physical care may be delivered by the likes of Hondas Asimo whilst many operations will be done better by machinery and better targeted medicines will ensure we live to around 120yrs old. There will still be a role for the GP who can empathise and interpret the subtleties of the human condition but technical work will be a thing of the past.
