At the heart of general practice since 1960

No time even for a cross word

When I read that GPs were going to be able to get PCTs to do their daytime visits, I thought that it must be April 1.

We have already reduced our job to a four-and-a-half day week. Our chronic disease management is taken over by our nurses. Our 'walking wounded' can go to the walk-in centre.

We will end up with solid surgeries throughout the day full of heartsinks and trivia, and if non-attenders are reduced we won't even have time for crosswords.
