Strokes – the importance of acting F-A-S-T to avoid brain injury

The consequences of a stroke can be life changing and it is critical to recognise the signs and symptoms of a stroke and act FAST (Face, Arms, Speech, Time to call an ambulance) as a delay in treatment can result in serious injuries and even death. In addition to recognising the signs and symptoms of stroke, it is important that people take preventative measures. Treatment and advice should be sought by those suffering from high blood pressure in order to prevent a stroke in the future.

Virtual GP apps will revolutionise medical care and the medical negligence landscape

You may have seen a growing number of advertising campaigns for “virtual” GP applications (“apps”) on your daily commute. These apps offer patients the chance to arrange a video or telephone appointment with a GP. The patient can then book a face-to-face appointment if necessary. Some of the providers offer a free service because it qualifies for NHS funding. These apps bring about benefits but also risks and unanswered questions around liability and medical negligence.
