The NHS is looking for virtual medical doctors and other healthcare professionals to help it cope with the rising number of patients with acute conditions.
The Government is also investing more than £1bn to build a new virtual medical unit at Kingston, which will help patients get medical advice and treatment at the front of the queue for medical appointments.
It is the first time a government has invested in a new medical unit for acute care and there are fears that more hospitals could follow suit.
The first virtual medical units in the UK are expected to open by the end of the year and are expected be the most expensive, costing £1,300 a session.
But there is hope they will be able to provide quicker and cheaper access to the NHS.NHS Secretary Sir Simon Stevens told BBC News: “There are some very interesting ways to do that.
I think it’s very, very exciting.”
It’s a really exciting, new technology, it’s going to be very, really important for us as we look to get this right.”‘
I’m really proud’The health secretary said that he had been impressed by the experience of virtual medical assistants at the Royal London hospital.
He said: “It’s very important for patients that they have an accurate and accurate answer to the question of whether they need treatment.”
I think I’m really very proud of this technology, I think the NHS is very proud.”
He said he was keen to expand its reach and reach beyond the Royal Hospital in London.
“If we can bring it to the hospitals and see if we can get it to other parts of the country, that would be fantastic,” he said.
“So we are going to keep working hard to do so.”‘
It’s great to be part of it’The Royal London Hospital said the virtual medical centre was “a really positive thing for the NHS”.
It said it had invested “in the future” of its emergency department, saying it had built up an “entire new suite of specialist services”.
The hospital said it was in talks with NHS Digital to offer more virtual medical services for the future.
Nurse and midwife Rosalie Cuthbert said:”We are delighted that we have been able to partner with NHS digital to make this an opportunity for us.”
We can now offer virtual medical service to people in the emergency department who are in urgent need of urgent medical care.
“She said it could also help to save money by allowing people to visit the hospital when they were in the same situation.”
With the virtual facility, we can save money because we can go and see people in their own home and we can visit them,” she said.’
A really great technology’The Government says virtual medical professionals could help the NHS provide faster, cheaper and more reliable healthcare.
The health service says the virtual facilities would be used by health professionals and the public, who would not have to wait in a waiting room or wait for an appointment to be made.
The virtual medical centres would also be able help the Royal Liverpool Hospital make sure it is up to date on the latest medical technology.
The system will be set up in a bid to help the hospital cope with rising numbers of patients who have acute conditions, such as pneumonia, as the number of acute admissions has been rising.
The Royal Liverpool is set to be the first of its kind in the world to offer virtual healthcare to the public.
