Pryers Solicitors were interested to see if this would work, so did a survey to see if the the general public across the UK would prefer the video consultations. A staggering 68% said they wouldn't use it and this was before they were told they would have to pay for it. The over 65s were really against it, with 85% of them saying they would not use it. I guess for them it would be a whole new experience that just complicates things, especially if they are not as up to date with technology as the younger people.
I was more for the idea before I found out you had to pay. Especially with having kids, you worry about them a lot more and always want to get them checked 'just incase', even when you're sure they're ok which could add up. I have also thought about people like my mum who has skin issues, arthritis, hip problems.. she is always at the doctors being checked out and getting new medications, for her it would cost so much! I think it might work for those who rarely go to the doctors or who rarely get ill and are willing to pay if they do think they have something wrong, but like most things, it isn't going to work for everyone.
