ATM prescription idea worth a try
The NHS could save time and money if one could access a GP software ATM for routine prescriptions.
One could key in symptoms and out would pop the prescription for the majority of common ailments. More complicated symptoms would be transferred to a screen where the patient could book an appointment. Legally the onus would be on the patient who opted for the ATM prescription.
