Shared appointments at doctors' surgeries are being trialled across England - and patients like them, a group of GPs has said.

Up to 15 patients with the same condition have shared GP appointments as part of tests at some surgeries, the Royal College of GPs said.

It said patients benefited from support from other people, while GPs said it stopped them repeating advice.

Live streaming might be the answer. You can reach thousands if not millions - the technology is tried and tested on youtube.

You can also get comments and feedback real time in the comments.

 

The info is out there (NHS Choices, etc), but some people don't like to find out or read up. People have different learning styles, some need to be spoken to by a person of knowledge and authority.

But how will I be able to take great pleasure in telling the nosey receptionist "none of your bloody business" when she asks why I want to see the doctor,  if this gets rolled out? O.o

Oh, you can still do that but afterwards, she will be stood in the back of the room whilst you spill all your secrets. 

Do you think it will be like an AA meeting?

Welll....

The hole in it is that the groups are meant to be fellow sufferers, meainging thry need to see a specialist rather than a GP,

Unless its the usual suspects - diabetes, heart problems, smokimg groups.

Actually, why not live stream the Group GP appointments! What a brilliant idea. 

The live stream goes to the youtube NHS channel. Various GP shared appointments get uploaded (later) or streamed live  to youtube, so if you can't make a shared appointment you can log onto a scheduled one which can be from anywhere in the country. As long as full names aren't mentioned and the patients are happy with it, then data protection should be OK.

People all over the world can access NHS practises for free - no need to get on a boat or lorry to get here.

Fuck that. Why not just ring the gp and talk to him.

^Lumpy GP availability all over the UK, depending on population make up and GP numbers.

We're lucky, we can usually get an appointment same day (sorry can't reveal the GP practice), whilst some have to wait 3 weeks.

If you are willing to pay private - like Push Doctor, then you'll be seen immediately.

The future will be shared appointments or automated GP appointments which will filter people out to a real person at the end of the line, and medicines all delivered by drone (probably).

The Amazonisation of medical practice is the next step. I believe Amazon have already bought an online pharmacy.

Imagine this - Alexa says

"You're running out of medicines, shall I order them?

"Yes"

Job done. Alexa orders your repeat, and get's it delivered.

Alexa may well be the AI doctor at some point also.

In 10 years, we won't recognise healthcare in this current format.

I read of a guy who tried out an online pox clinic. Sent them pics of his 'this don't look right' junk and $60 later was sent a diagnosis. He also went to see a pox doctor and for $200 they confirmed the online diagnosis.

Won't last long, the collective wisdom of the patients will exceed that of the Doctor, who will then stomp out in a massive hissy fit xD
