Laymen have unrealistic ideas on spotting cancer

Could you please reassure us all that your October 25 issue is in fact a late April Fool's Day prank?

·'GP health plan for everyone' was obviously thought up by someone who has never seen a patient, or at least not for a very long time.

·'Blair to order appointment clampdown' ­ what planet are these people on?

·'GP to block refer 100 patients' ­ is this the future of medicine in this country?

·'GP scandalised by £30/hour ooh shift' ­ he shouldn't be doing them for that pittance.

So much for encouraging retention of doctors within primary care. Good luck all you nurse practitioners.
