How about driving to Barnard Castle to check your eyesight? If he had crashed, then maybe he he has proven a point that he wasn't safe to drive because of eyesight problems. So, that's OK then. Got an answer.
Brownie points for the politicians for this meaningless, misleading statistic!
Group consultations through PCNs! Expensive in time and resources. With rarely much benefit.
I remember an undertaker telling me of one GP insisting on putting the stethoscope on the patient chest to verify death, even though the patient had spent 3 days in the fridge and had had a post mortem!
I got sued when a patient had one reading in COD 4 and had been taking Diclofenac for years for severe generalised OA without problems

Whatever happened to the Nicholson challenge of saving £20 billion in BHS efficiency savings?
The use of the term 'discrimatory' is disingenuous. Discrimination is important and appropriate in many areas
