I never heard of anything so crazy as online GP consultations. In Ireland, because there are no controls we don't know whether or not the people at the other end are qualified doctors or not. The Government should ensure that there is an increase in the number of GPs practising in Ireland and make the online fake medicine illegal.

I am surprised that online consultations are legal. Can such online doctors issue legal medical prescriptions? Are the doctors properly qualified and registered in Ireland? Irish patients need protection and it is up to Simon Harris to bring in approriate legislation to ban this practice.
