Today we are speaking with Dr Thomas Round on the topic of remote consultations in general practice.
Dr Thomas Round is a GP in north-east London and a primary care cancer researcher at KCL.
Tune in to hear his views on how the Covid-19 pandemic has shifted the general practice model; when and if remote consultations are acceptable; the importance of the gut feeling; the role of remote consultations in easing the current burden on general practice; tackling health inequalities and much more.
