Why convenience isn’t all it’s cracked up to be in medicine

I have a confession to make: Prior to COVID-19, I had barely stepped foot into a supermarket for more than two years.

Why would I, when I had found online delivery shopping? A few clicks and a card payment and the items were at my door within hours. With my children reluctantly able to unpack the goods, weekend life had become increasingly cushty.

In this dot com age, convenience is King. It has lined the pockets of multiple industries, with mass production and efficient delivery being rewarded handsomely.
