I would be perfectly happy doing initial triage for symptoms via video. I already order travel drugs online. If i needed to go regulary however, i’d prefer to see the same doctor, or nurse. My practice nurse has been doing my vaccinations, holiday checks and womens health stuff (smears). Its good to be able to go in and have a chat about stuff, because she remembers.

I do think there’s a set of illnesses that will not come across via video, and that’s when the doctor moves beyond what is talked about. That is the skill and instinct, so we need to be careful not to lose that
