On phoning the surgery
The receptionist picks
Up the phone
Says she will triage me
She said there was no
Need for me to see
The Doctor
I guess she's telepathic
Checks lungs hart brain
& everything over the phone
Has the power of life & death
How clever is she!

Hm, that doesn't sound right. Over here, they ask about covid-related questions to determine if you'd be a risk to go in person. Over the phone to determine anything else related to health, that's just ridiculous. That must create a lot of stress :/

This telemedicine being practiced now is a bit alarming! I guess you can still go to Casualty (emergency) if the need is dire though. Good point Ken.
