NHS offers smartphone GP appointments

The NHS in London is piloting a 24-hour service offering GP consultations via videolink on smartphones. Patients will be able to check their symptoms through the mobile app and then have video consultations within two hours of booking.

Patients joining the pilot will leave their existing practice, with their records transferred to a group of five central London surgeries.

The Royal College of GPs has warned the service may not help patients with complex needs, and may be luring GPs away from front-line general practice at a time when hardworking GPs are struggling to cope with existing workloads.
