There are many, many doctors who embrace technology in healthcare. But for one GP in Aberdeen, the thought of being asked to conduct consultations by Skype - as recently advocated by NHS medical director Sir Bruce Keogh - seems to have been just a bit too much.
Kevin Hinkley unburdened himself in a post on the pulsetoday website that was headlined "as deadly as afternoon tea with Gaddafi" and went on to describe the notion as "nothing short of medical terrorism". Dr Hinkley seems to regard computers as inherently unhelpful: prone to running virus checks and downloading updates at the worst possible moments. Crashing just because cups of tea land on them. EHI sympathises. We have a router that is causing all sorts of problems at the moment. But medical terrorism?
