Oh the wonders of modern technology! I was interested to hear that it may soon be possible to make a doctor’s appointment via your tv set! A pilot scheme is going to be running in some areas of the country, where people can access the same appointments screen as their doctor’s receptionist via a special password put into their digital tv box. Appointments can also be re-arranged and cancelled and all at the touch of a button!
The initial results of a trial of the scheme in Yorkshire look promising. It drastically cut the number of missed appointments. If successful, the scheme is set to be adopted by over a thousand GP’s surgeries around the country. In the future, patients will also be able to order repeat prescriptions through their tv too. What a brilliant idea!
