Hunt to announce new 'rigorous' inspection regime for GP practices to improve patient care


What's the saying about constantly weighing the pig doesn't produce the best bacon? My partner was told that he was harder to see than the Queen! I'm not certain that this is true but Mr Hunt needs to tackle demand. The buck stopping with the GP is fine if the service or need required is of a GP and their skills. Such as a patient that refused flatly to see a nurse for ear wax and got a GP appointment! This is part of the problem Giving people what they want wins votes and is popular, giving them what they need is right and proper. The public expect too much from too little but no one will stand up and tell them that. I'm 45 and will take my vastly reduced pension at 50 and find other work, as it wont be worth proping up the ponzi scheme that the pension is and I can go and work where I'm valued properly as I've had enough of 12-14 hour days and being accused of being rich and lazy.
