The rise of digital doctors
With online medical appointments growing, are they as good or secure as the real thing? Johannes Schildt is chief executive of Sweden's Kry, which offers an app called Livi to connect patients with doctors, and tells us about their ambition for the service. We hear a range of feedback from listeners about their experience with digital doctors. And Martin Marshall, chair of the Royal College of General Practitioners explains what sort of scenarios have been found to be ideal or otherwise for virtual medical appointments. Also in the programme, we conclude our series of interviews with figures from each of Britain's main political parties ahead of this week's general election. Daniel Hannan is a Member of the European Parliament for the ruling Conservative Party, and discusses his party's main economic policy proposals. Plus, as the death of one of the men who helped develop the barcode, George Laurer, is announced, we consider the impact of the invention on the retail sector.
