It is often most efficient and effective for doctors to discuss the principles of treatment without examining each others’ patients.

This is not new and already happens currently.

Doctors will decide for themselves what information they need in order to offer views on treatment, and whether they need to see the patient – as is the case now.

GMC guidance or hospital protocols will also be relevant.
