I think that's down to GP practices wanting to "vet" anyone wanting an appointment and seeing if a phone consultation would suffice. I'd expect it to return later this year

ETA to protect the practice from Covid

Hopefully the online appointment system will return. It must be more efficient for the practice (and certainly is for me)

Remember the key workers who were jailed? This is the type of work they did, not just ordinary welders as some seemed to suggest...

 

 

But we've got welders over here...

And this is considered suitable methodology for a "Heritage Railway" - who are they trying to fool?

Any KS3 Skool kid will tell you how Thermite mix works.  The rest is just grinding and finishing.

Things change, like regulations regarding processes.

Specialist welding skills required or not, it definitely didn't need to be done right then and could easily have waited until after lockdown.
