GPs face pay shock on BP quality target

Dr Mabel Aghadiuno is running a 'rapid-access referral clinic', seeing patients who put pressure on GPs to refer them to hospital when it may not be clinically appropriate.

Dr Aghadiuno, a salaried GP in Croydon, said she would be seeing patients who had put 'undue pressure' on their GP to give them a second opinion.

Run by Croydon PCT, the clinic will also promote appropriate use of the NHS.

'My role is to determine who is best placed to see patients and in most cases it will be the GP,' said Dr Aghadiuno.
