    “I know that I for one would be prepared to have 30-50% of my GP consultations conducted by videoconference.”

    Do you currently do any consultations by phone? If not, could we know why not?

    I can see a lot of people claiming that such virtual GP visits would be inferior to “being there”. I have no idea how that debate will evolve.
