In this John Fry lecture, Dr James Willis (writer and retired GP) discusses the potentially disastrous mistake of ignoring human qualities, over a more machine-like approach to general practice, drawing upon ideas that he originally derived from observations in his own general practice.

This lecture was filmed at an event called: 'John Fry lecture: Why machines need people. A lecture given by Dr James Willis'

RSM Event Description:

"John Fry is the pre-eminent exemplar of the generation of free-thinking doctors who, acting entirely on their own initiative, turned general practice in Britain, and subsequently throughout much of the world, into a modern scientific discipline. Now that the process of modernisation has run on for fifty years, making general practice in Britain more machine-like than Fry could possibly have imagined, it seems that the human qualities he exemplified are no longer necessary and are in fact dangerous.

Developing ideas which James Willis originally derived from observations in his own general practice, he will show that this is a tragic, potentially disastrous, but not yet irremediable, mistake."
