Editors' Notes

When we’re feeling off-colour, the annoyance of scheduling appointments only makes us feel worse. This app puts a lifeline to a doctor right in our pocket so we can get health advice without leaving our couch. It even monitors our concerns to help us stay in tip-top shape. Sure beats sitting in the waiting room.

The future of healthcare.

This app is innovative, why? Because it’s changing perception on traditional health management. I was one of those in the UK living in London - that used to wait a minimum of 2 weeks to get an appointment with my GP. Babylon health / GP at hand (NHS) has changed my outlook on healthcare in the UK. I’ve had a few ailments since being a member of Babylon health, and not only have I been seen to within minutes of reporting that ailment - it’s clever health bot has helped put my mind at ease when I’ve been concerned in the past. In serious circumstances the care has been fantastic, the doctors are incredibly knowledgeable, professional and do not ‘cut corners’. I’ve been referred to A&E on one occasion so the doctor was 100%. This app needs more attention and more funding, everyone should have access to this wonderful app. My only (small) gripe has been on several occasions my appointments have not been fulfilled by doctors (they’ve missed calling me) but - they we’re quick to replace the doctor and apologise for doctors occasionally missing an appointment. Again, I think if more funding and more doctors joined, this issue would dissipate. Well done Babylon team! Keep the QUALITY and attention to your end user HIGH. 👍🏼

Lots to like but not sufficiently joined up

Babylon is a valiant attempt to try to improve on the traditional, and broken, GP practices. However despite their vast funding, the system is not yet as smart as it could be. For example, when the video GP recommends an in person appointment, you have to go through a call centre to book the appointment, and this appointment doesn’t appear in the Babylon app. The good thing is, an appointment was available the next day and there was zero wait time at the surgery. But the doctor at my appointment recommended a blood test, though the blood test clinic was in the next room and the blood clinic nurse was free, I had to spend 15 minutes on hold to the phone to the call centre trying to book an appointment, and was told the blood clinic was fully booked - as the nurse put it, “in the time you’ve been on hold, I could have done four blood tests”. The nurse was very kind and did the blood tests in advance of the appointment so I didn’t have to come back later - but it shows the flaws in Babylon’s systems that this cannot be simply automated within the app or the doctor-facing system, or allow more flexibility to give a better patient experience. I wonder whether Babylon are focusing so much on growth and pleasing their Investors they have forgotten about building a first class and joined up customer/patient experience.
