WSD telehealth results discussion on BBC radio (UK)

Inside Health is a national, weekly, half-hour programme about health service matters broadcast on BBC Radio 4. This week it included a discussion on teleheath between the presenter, Dr Mark Porter, Dr Margaret McCartney, a GP who took a negative position, and the King’s Fund’s Nick Goodwin who offered a balanced view. Most repeats of BBC programs are blocked to web visitors from outside the UK but fortunately this programme is made permanently available as an mp3 podcast, so it should be available here. (Click to play in browser, right-click and ‘Save as…’ to download.) The 8-minute item begins at 7 minutes into the podcast but some readers will find the lead item on access to GPs interesting too. The BBC’s podcast terms of use are at the bottom of this page.
