Conservatives asked to consider an annual limit on GP appointments per patient


I agree it is completely unacceptable to ration GP appts per year but make it totally unacceptableto miss a GP appt - I have signed 20 repeat DNA letters today. Introduce a sanction for any missed appt? Place responsibility for health where it belongs which in first instance is with the patient, they need to realise no matter what this or other Govt say the NHS in present form is not safe in politicans hands. Charge for all scripts - not a lot but if people had to pay £1 for a script for paracetamol maybe they would trot along and buy them for 16pence in local chemist.
