Anasty­caseof Skypochon­dria

Sunday Mirror (Northern Ireland) - - Saira Khan -

How would you feel about Skyp­ing your doc­tor to chat about your itchy bits?

Univer­sity Hos­pi­tal of North Staffs is set to be the first in Europe to start Skype video con­sul­ta­tions to try to save time, money and car park spa­ces. There’s been a ton of an­gry feed­back.

A lot of older peo­ple can hardly charge up a Nokia, let alone work Skype.

But I wel­come it. If the NHS can’t get the cash it needs, it is go­ing to have to em­brace tech­nol­ogy.

I’d rather see a doc­tor in my own home than die of bore­dom in a wait­ing room.
