GPs to be judged on how 'caring' they are for patients, says CQC


I'm a duty doctor on every monday, arguably the busiest day of the week. Even my regulars find me astute on mondays (infact most of them have learnt not to see me on monday for non urgent problems). But what do you expect when I'm making close to 70 clinical contacts (about 50 face to face and 20 phone calls) in a day! I doubt it has anything to do with improving the quality of primary care - more GP bashing to satisfy politician's agenda.
