What kind of referrals will the Virtual GP deal with?
• Coughs and colds
• Discussions about results and interpretation of letters
• Ongoing problems where the medication may need amending
• Repeat prescriptions
• Sick notes
• Simple conditions
• Soreness, aches, and pains
• Vaccination advice
• Where the patient specifically requests a phone call from a GP
