As the remote way of working for GPs and doctors continues, the prospect of virtual GP appointments continuing into a post-pandemic world is becoming more realistic. 
Before the covid-19 pandemic, over 80% of doctors’ appointments and GP consultations were conducted in person, a number which is now at around 50%, despite the complete easing of lockdown restrictions for over 3 months. 
While these remote consultations have no doubt played a large role in reducing the spread of the virus, and the transmission of infection to medical staff, and immunocompromised people visiting their GP, the negative consequences of this way of working is beginning to show; including growing concerns over the misdiagnosis of cancer in patients leading to premature deaths and delayed treatment of cancers. Our no win no fee medical negligence solicitors specialising in cancer misdiagnosis claims discuss this below, and highlight worrying new data about cancer misdiagnosis rates.

What are the risks of remote GP appointments? 

When GP appointments are carried out over the phone, or photos of medical concerns are sent via WhatsApp from patients, there is no possibility for GPs and doctors to physically examine the patient. It is no surprise that under this way of working, concerns have risen over the ability of GPs to accurately diagnosis serious health conditions, such as cancers, without seeing the patient in person, examining their symptoms, and assessing their overall physical health. 
With the onset of Winter, NHS England has written to GP practices across the country to ensure that they are communicating to patients the option of a face- to- face appointment with a doctor. A new study from the University of Exeter Medical School and University College London, has revealed that only 40% of patients attending their GP received an urgent referral within 14 days of presentation with potential “Red Flag” signs for cancers. 
More worryingly, it found that “Guideline recommendations for action are not followed for the majority of patients presenting with common possible cancer features.  A significant number of these patients developed cancer within one year of their consultation, indicating scope for improvement in the diagnostic process”. 
When you visit a GP displaying symptoms of an aggressive cancer, and receive an urgent referral to a specialist, you should be given an appointment within 2 weeks. A specialist may need to do a variety of tests to decide on a diagnosis, including a CT scan, MRI scan or PET scan. These targets are set by the NHS, but the study above shows that they are struggling to meet the targets specified. 
If you have had to wait longer than specified for a diagnostic test for your cancer, had appointments cancelled or pushed back, and have suffered from further injury or illness, and the worsening of your cancer as a result, you could be eligible to make a no win no fee cancer misdiagnosis claim with our medical negligence solicitors at MG Legal.
