This new study by Oxford academics led by Professor Trisha Greenhalgh looked at newspaper coverage of the shift to remote consultations. It found that media depictions of remote GP consultations in the early months of the pandemic linked GPs with progress, efficiency, and safety; whereas media reports in more recent months have emphasised missed diagnoses, challenges to the therapeutic relationship, and digital inequalities. Perhaps rightly, the press have questioned why a policy originally introduced for infection control was then made permanent.
