Stopping unnecessary post-op follow-up appointments

by Robert Varnam | 5 months ago | in What to stop
Horizon 2

COVID has resulted in a move towards clinical follow-up that's more driven by patient need than surgical habit. Surgeons have been forced firstly to create channels to make it easier for patients to make rapid contact with queries or problems (patient-driven, needs-led follow-up), and secondly to drop the idea of "routine" follow-up appointments "just to check" the patient is OK. 

Should this be stopped or restarted in a different way? If you think it should be restarted in a different way then how would you change it from before?
