Use of online consultations in healthcare

By Ellen Nicholson
Ellen Nicholson had the opportunity to speak on LBC this evening in response to Matt Hancock's announcement for more online consultations.
Aside from being spokesperson for the Lib Dems in SW Wilts, Ellen works for the NHS and advocates the use of online consultations as they free up time taken going to appointments but also advocated some caution on the programme this evening in the rush to online first consultations, as some people who are less tech savvy or have specific difficulties, may find themselves excluded.
So thought we'd throw the topic open.
How have people across South West Wiltshire managed their healthcare appointments over the past few months,has online consultations helped, or do you prefer a face to face discussion in person?
All thoughts and suggestions for improving things welcome.
