Letters: Open boundaries mean more centralisation

To cope with patients far from the practice we will need:

facilities for telemedicine, like the interactive audio-visual telehealth booths coming into pharmacies;

arrangements for home visits to be delegated to the local out-of-hours service; and

awareness that this opens up the possibility of more centralisation of services.

We need to develop into larger organisations that can compete in this market.
