Yep recommended by Dr Alessi - the GP who dropped his complex patients..
We had one of these - patient needed to be seen in colposcopy after an abnormal screening smear. We had tried to chase the result to no avail. The result eventually arrived but the patient had long since left the practice and her mobile was not accepting calls.
Of course, no-one at SBS et al. will be held responsible but if we had done this we certainly would have (and then some).
It's no just about Capita. All of 'back office'/management seem to have power with no responsibility. They can mess up and then can move on with no come-back.
Oh the joys of being in a regulated profession!

If being a locum is that lucrative and you are so poor why don't you change?
(I'm currently a partner but have been a locum and salaried GP in the past)
I assume the minister has figures as to how much this is costing the NHS and also how much it will cost to enforce & any anticipated saving? Where are the numbers? Policy by anecdote is bad policy.
